A thick and heavy kantha, due to the stitch work and layering of fabrics. If you could stand to cut it, it would be fun to use as upholstery material (keep in mind it is very dense). It would also make a sturdy picnic blanket or a fun piece to keep for outdoor use.
The detailed embroidery work is stunning.
Approximately 50" x 74"
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
