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.

Nita is a heavier weight patchwork striped kantha, in the subtle braids of sari edging, in deep green and vintage rose, with purple highlights, and a coffee brown and white check on the reverse.

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.
