There’s artistry and intricate handwork in every stitch of our latest quilt design. We melded time-honored techniques, meticulous handcraftsmanship, and modern color to create the Scalloped Trapunto Quilt. Here we take you behind the design to show you what goes into making this soft, textural bedding and what makes it so special.
“Trapunto” means “to quilt” in Italian. It’s an artistic technique where batting is added for an enhanced three-dimensional “stuffed” effect within its stitchwork. This creates a soft, poufy decorative pattern, rich with sophisticated texture, depth, and dimension. The technique uses at least two layers of fabric. The underside is slit and padded in specific areas defined by the stitching, giving them a distinctive, raised look. This quilting technique has been used for centuries, so it’s timelessly traditional, yet it’s finding its way into modern quilt design.
Each quilt is made by skilled artisans and requires extensive attention to detail and craftsmanship. The pattern is created from hand-drawn original art. Every Scalloped Trapunto Quilt is unique, owing to the hand-guided work of the artisan. Blending time-honored technique with high-quality materials, each of these quilts is a piece of art, destined to be an heirloom on beds for generations to come. Offered in contemporary shades of soft ocean blue, warm ivory, and bold ochre, our Trapunto design pays tribute to the past while embracing modern design trends.
The final quilt is a well-choreographed dance of sophisticated color, pattern, and texture — an heirloom-quality piece that will add artistry and flair to any bed for years to come.
