A delightful vintage floral kantha quilt featuring sprigs of flowers in a denim blue and apricot on a pale yellow background on one side. The reverse is a bold geometric print in orange and green.
Originally from East Bengal and Bangladesh kantha quilts are crafted from several layers of recycled saris, which are sewn together with tiny running stitches, known as kantha, to create colourful, one of a kind, blankets.
This unique vintage floral kantha quilt would look lovely in a country cottage as a lightweight quilt or draped over the back of a sofa or armchair to add pattern and texture. It’s perfect as a picnic blanket too.
Each vintage quilt is handmade from sections of cotton saries and as such there may be irregularities and patches but we think this adds to their vintage charm.
