Miniature Costumes and Quilts: Geeta Khandelwal's Labor of Love

Miniature Costumes and Quilts: Geeta Khandelwal's Labor of Love

The ancient maharajas (kings) of northern India wore lavish robes in a variety of styles. In 2016, quiltmaker Geeta Khandelwal of Mumbai, India decided she wanted to make miniature versions of these traditional garments. Inspired by the ceremonial and everyday clothing of the Indian maharajas between the 1750s and the 1950s, Khandelwal dedicated her sewing expertise to creating royal robes that were approximately one-eighth of their original size. She also created miniature garments from other walks of life in India. Miniature Costumes and Quilts: Geeta Khandelwal's Labor of Love features these miniature garments and also presents a selection of Khandelwal's doll quilts, each paired with an Indian piece from the International Quilt Museum collection.
