More on Kantha:

These textiles are handmade from layers of upcycled cotton saris held together by a running “kantha” stitch - a traditional style of Bengali embroidery. This brings to life a resource that may otherwise have been discarded and also generates a useful income for marginalised communities living in rural areas of India and Bangladesh.

The resulting kantha quilts may be patched, or show signs of wear and tear revealing a layer beneath adding charm and individuality. We believe this adds character with a unique story behind each piece.

All textiles are gently cleaned before being made into the finished article.
