Vintage Kantha quilts
Posted: Jul 09 2012
Hand made from recycled saris, these vintage quilts are hand picked during our travels. To create each of these one-of-a-kind quilts, female artisans in and around Calcutta, India, cut and stitch vibrantly hued recycled vintage cotton saris by hand, using a traditional embroidery technique called kantha to form intricate designs. Because of how these quilts are made, each is unique in color, pattern and design and are mellowed by years of washing. These are all close to 60" x 90" (Twin size) and hence can be used as a bedcover, blanket or throw.
