Add colour, texture, and personality to your home with a beautiful vintage kantha quilt. Used as a throw, draped on a chair or on the end of your bed, these unique pieces represent a connection to a centuries old textile tradition, and to the creativity and skill of Bengali women.

Made from old saris, layered and finely stitched by hand using the traditional Bengali running (kantha) stitch, each piece is unique. You can read more about the history of kantha quilts on the blog.

The ultimate in upcycling, these quilts are versatile, durable and require a minimum of care.

Elli is a classic and generously sized heavy weight kantha, featuring bright pastel stripes, with beautiful little vintage patches on one side, white on the reverse.

  • 100% cotton
  • 155cm x 236cm
  • Multiple fabric layers, finely hand quilted
  • Designed and made in India

NOTE : These quilts are made from vintage fabrics, patched and stitched by hand. Any variation or inconsistency is not to be construed as a fault, but part of the intrinsic beauty of the history of the piece and the handmade process.
