Carmona's Talking Quilt By Savia Viegas

Carmona's Talking Quilt is a captivating tale of inter-generational artistry and nostalgia, woven by Savia Viegas, a versatile artist hailing from the Goan village of Carmona. Inspired by her mother's mastery in embroidery, Savia's journey with the art form began as a childhood fascination, later balanced with academic pursuits. Her return to Goa in 2005 sparked a creative resurgence, leading to the creation of a denim quilt using salvaged fabric from her sons' childhood and family members. The quilt, adorned with intricate embroidery by her mother, is a testament to the transformative power of preserving memories through art, breathing new life into discarded materials and weaving a narrative of heritage and creativity.
