Scroll over the images to see the design in more detail.

 

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 pieces from different saris and others have added embroidery. This particular quilt stands out for its exotic design.

 

Each Indian vintage kantha throw 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 work well as picnic blankets too.

 

Each vintage blanket is handcrafted and as such there may be irregularities in colour and stitching and some patches but we think this adds to their charm.

 

Material: 100% cotton
Size: width 140cm x length 216cm. Suitable for a single or double bed as a footer or throw.
Washing instructions: Machine wash at 30c using a mild detergent.
