Quilt Closet

Zhongdian, Tibet

Farmhouses are without heat so Tibetan families stay warm by piling quilts on top of a futon-like mattresses which are spread on the floor. During the day they fold the blankets up and stash them in a cubby, freeing up the floor. The decoration around the room is as ornate as the quilts are colorful. In this photo there is also a shopping bag adorned with anime faces.
