Vintage Kantha - unique piece
Available for Click and Collect in 1 stores Detail
This handcrafted indian kantha cotton is made from recycled fabric and sarees worn in India.
For centuries, women have created kantha fabrics of various sizes for their home, a skill that was passed down in the family from generation to generation. Khantas are formed by layers of old saris and discarded dhotis held together by intricate rows of running stitches. The embroidered stitches hold the multiple layers of reclaimed cotton together to form a non padded quilt which offers a pleasing regularity.
Household kanthas were treasured family heirlooms, and were sewn for loved ones as a gesture of thanks and blessing. Women developed their own stitches, almost as a signature, as a unique form of expression, a sense of individuality and creativity. With designs ranging from geometric to highly decorative, no two kanthas are ever the same, each one recalling the very hand of its creator.
Use this beautiful hand stitched kantha fabric as a throw on your sofa, combine it with some hand printed pillows and create a beautiful and unique boho chic interior decor.
