Kanthas originate in Bangladesh and the eastern states of India, where women stitch together layer upon layer of old saris and cotton scraps to create thin throws used as blankets and cushions. The ultimate in upcycling and recycling!
Kanthas are whimsically different on both sides with delightfully boho unmatched prints and colors. Just flip them over to find a complementary color and pattern on the underside. Kantha throws are a one of a kind item which don’t come in one single color and are organic and eco-friendly. As these are made by old recycled saris they may have some loose threads, open ends, small spots/stain and small patches which are not considered defects, as the item is made of vintage material.
How can you use kantha quilts in your home?
Layer them over your sofa at the ready to snuggle and to add a pop of color.
Kanthas make great table covers...thin enough that glasses won't wobble...
