Unique Piece – SOLD
This beautiful vintage kantha quilt combines a fresh lemon and orange block print on one side with a jade and apricot floral print on the reverse.
Originally from East Bengal and Bangladesh kantha quilts are crafted from several layers of upcycled saris, which are sewn together with tiny running stitches known as kantha to create blankets. Some quilts combine several saris on one side and others have added embroidery.
Each vintage kantha quilt is unique. They are perfect as lightweight quilts for a single bed or a decorative footer for a double or king size bed. Drape them over the back or arm of a sofa to add pattern or texture or use them to cover a headboard or chest. They are perfect as picnic blankets too.
Each vintage quilt is handcrafted and as such there may be irregularities and patches but we think this adds to their vintage charm.
