Hand stitched vintage throw Kantha quilts are made of 100% old cotton recycled fabric with layers of cotton saris sewn together with thousands of small and delicate fine Kantha stitches, which make every throw unique. Hand crafted and quilted by artisans in India.
Kantha is the ancient Indian art of embroidery with a simple running stitch that flows through-out this quilt. The way in which the stitch has been used is what makes the quilt extraordinary and reminiscent of vintage bedding. While making the pieces, the cloth is given layers that are kept together by the stitches and is made in such a way that it is reversible. The entire quilt is painstakingly embroidered with thousands of small and delicate Kantha stitches to create a one of a kind masterpiece! This is a special hand quilted Kantha with a vintage bohemian pattern that can add spice to any decor.
