Just the way kantha should be! A few well-loved cotton saris quilted together with careful hand running stitches to make a lovely lightweight blanket.
This gorgeous recycled sari bedspread fits up to a US Full/Double size bed and makes a wonderful boho throw on any size larger. Sofas, tables, even picnics all benefit from this fantastic textile tradition.
As a kantha quilt, throw or picnic rug, this recycled sari blanket is stitched in Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh.The city is a melting pot of kantha quilting traditions and styles from all over the country.
See the info images for comparison between the Dhaka and narrower Jessore style of stitching. The Jessore stitch is 1.5 to 2 times as dense as the Dhaka stitch.
Kantha, meaning ‘rags’, is the ancient tradition of recycling well worn, vintage saris into beautiful throws for family use and special celebrations. Using a simple all over running stitch, recycled saris are quilted together. The layers of soft, worn cotton give a wonderfully cozy feel and look to every item made from this carefully crafted fabric.
