Kantha B102

Approx 48"x74"

The stitching.  Oh, the stitching.  I'm in love with this smaller piece.  I tend to call this a lap quilt size.  Smaller than the traditional "twin size" kanthas you may be familiar with.  The choices made with thread colors create an ombre effect in areas.  The craftsmanship is undeniable on this one.

 

Kantha comes from the Sanskrit word meaning rag. Saris or fabric remnants layered & bound with a running stitch. The practice began in Bangladesh & India. Many makers believe the blankets provided protection from harm.

Ensuring our pieces are sourced ethically is a must.  Each blanket is one of a kind.  Patches, marks, etc make your piece uniquely your own.

We recommend laundering with cold water, and a gentle detergent on a delicate cycle. Air drying is best
