"Limited-edition wholecloth throw quilt made from two Burmese textiles: vintage silk ikat women's longyyi as the front and a men's madras longyii as the back. Lined with unbleached cotton batting and eternal love. Inspired by the textile itself--wasn't meant to be cut into--and the famous Duras love affair set in Southeast Asia."
