Anchal Project, pronounced [on-chal], is the creation of sisters Colleen and Maggie Clines. The inspiration to create Anchal struck after Maggie and Colleen visited Ajmer, India, and learned about the extreme oppression some women in the region faced as commercial sex workers. Defined by sophisticated patchwork and aggregated stitch patterns, Anchal’s contemporary geometric designs add beautiful color and texture. Anchal carries handcrafted organic bedding, fair trade clothing, canvas tote bags, and more in their recognizable colorful pattern. Their approach revolutionizes the traditional Kantha quilting techniques from north India to create modern, heirloom-quality pieces.
