I am a sucker for a darker kantha like this. It's not what you typically see, so I'm quick to source them when I find them. The coloring on this one - maybe the fabric was originally black? It's faded in the best way so that it almost has a green tint to it. The border is a faded brick red that subtly blends into the darker black/grey/green? color. Fantastic stitching that runs in different directions. The reverse side is a combination of golds, browns, and blacks. Details? It has them.... patchwork and some repair stitching that make it even more of a unique purchase. Like most of our selection, this quilt would make a perfect throw or blanket. This is one I would be tempted to keep in the back of my car for fall tailgating, or outdoor little league events when my kids were little.
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.
