Kantha 0808

Approx 62" x 90"

If you love the idea of kanthas, but want something that looks newer - this is your blanket.  It is spectacular.  The hand work is near perfect - tiny, tight, stitching uniform in length.    Light green, dark purple, and tan bound by with an orange sari border.  A column of purple runs the length of the quilt as a patch.  The reverse is a bit more dramatic with tan, black, and orange and a large portion of green.  It's a heavier weight than most of our blankets.  It will soften with age and laundering.  I envision it at the foot of a bed.  If these are your colors, it would make beautiful upholstery material as well.  Another option - this kantha would be stunning as table cloth for a garden party.

...

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
