in the Lakota culture are made to be given away. Quilts have become integrated into every aspect of Lakota life, and are used whenever people hold celebrations perceived as traditional - including naming ceremonies, weddings, births and memorials.

Quilt is made of a polyester/cotton blend fabric and filled with cotton/polyester fiberfill. Machine washable.
