Recycled saris are quilted into kantha to make this lightweight, unlined drawstring bag. The zipped outside pocket secures most handheld devices at 6.5″ 17cm square and the strong drawstring cords close the bag securely. The beautiful textures, tones and useful size of this drawstring backpack make it a great daypack.
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, 2 or 3 recycled saris are quilted together. The layers of soft, worn cotton give a wonderful vintage feel and look to every item made from this carefully crafted fabric.
