The Siddis who live in Karnataka, India are of African descent. Siddis women craft dynamic quilts, which they make for their children and grandchildren. These utilitarian efforts have a visual strength one sees in the most sophisticated works of art. Bold and complex, the Siddis quilts present a geometry that transcends the decorative. Reminiscent of Gee’s Bend quilts from rural Alabama, the Siddis quilts show that the extraordinary can be found in the simplest of domestic endeavors.
