Anchal Project, pronounced [on-chal], is the creation of sisters Colleen and Maggie Clines. Maggie and Colleen were inspired to create Anchal after visiting Ajmer, India and learning about the extreme oppression some women in the region faced as commercial sex workers. They were moved by the economic opportunity presented by the region's rich textiles. Anchal’s contemporary geometric designs are defined by sophisticated patchwork and aggregated stitch patterns. Their approach revolutionizes the traditional Kantha quilting techniques from north India to create modern, heirloom quality pieces. All Anchal products are handmade in India and using eco-friendly dyes, natural fibers, and organic cotton.
Anchal Project also runs DyeScape, a natural dye education, and training program at their organization’s headquarters in Louisville, Kentucky. Anchal Project is a 501(c)3 non-profit and is fair trade certified by Fair Trade Federation.
