Unique Piece

 

A dramatic vintage kantha blanket combining a botanical print in blackberry, rose and yellow on one side with a bold orange, yellow and purple circular pattern on the reverse. Both sides have more than one print in complimentary colours. Scroll over the images to see the designs 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 runny stitches known as kantha to create blankets. Some quilts combine several saris on one side and others have added embroidery.

 

Each vintage kantha blanket 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 patches but we think this adds to their vintage charm.

 

Material: 100% cotton

Size: width 152cm x length 226cm. Suitable for a single bed as a quilt or a double or king size as a footer or throw.

Washing instructions: Machine wash at 30c using a mild detergent.
