Kantha quilts: An art in preservation

Posted on June 15 2016

Check out our fabulous vintage kantha throws!  We've got a lovely selection of these throws on our site.

Kantha is a traditional type of embroidery used to preserve and re-use vintage cotton saris, in small ethnic communities in Bengal, India. Our reversible kantha throws are original, one-of-a-kind pieces using vintage cotton fabrics in beautiful colors. Vintage saris are stitched together with tiny running stitches to form a slight delicate quilted effect. These original pieces are perfect for the end of your bed or draped on your couch, for that sophisticated elegance, or to curl under. The stitches also add aesthetic value to the throws. Due to its age, each piece is delicate and the colors are mellowed due to years of washing.
