These hand-sewn Kantha throws are crafted by artisans in Kolkata, India.
Kantha is a traditional embroidery style of Bengal, involving simple and running stitches. The vintage sari material is stitched together with colourful thread to create these beautiful, softly layered cotton throws. Multiple quilted layers of reclaimed sari material make these Kantha throws thicker and warmer, and any small imperfections to the vintage saris (such as holes or snags) are carefully patched with matching fabrics to bring out each ones true handmade nature. Our vibrant sari blankets are also reversible so when you need a fresh look, just flip them over.
Each throw is one-of-a-kind so when it's gone, it's gone!
The special thing about these throws is that they are all individually handmade, and each throw is tagged with the woman's name who has made this specially for you. The name given to this throw reflects the difference these purchases are making.
WASHING CARE: The blankets machine wash very well. We recommend washing separate in cold water and dry on low. Size: Approx 2.1m x 1m Due to the handmade nature of these throws, the size may vary slightly
