Watch Artisans Craft a Beautiful Indian Bedspread

Anita Lal, creative director of Good Earth, offers insight into the making of an Indian razai or bed quilt. This stunning short from Storyloom Films captures the detailed process of meticulously carved woodblock designs carefully printed on fabric, which is then hand-stitched to create a piece that is both beautiful and functional.

Read a Q&A with filmmakers Nidhi Kamath and Keya Vaswani.

The Short Film Showcase spotlights exceptional short videos created by filmmakers from around the web and selected by National Geographic editors. We look for work that affirms National Geographic's belief in the power of science, exploration, and storytelling to change the world. The filmmakers created the content presented, and the opinions expressed are their own, not those of the National Geographic Society.
