An exquisite interior accent piece or everyday dose of joy at meal times! This beautifully hand stitched kantha is a practical, reversible table runner and echoes the dostorkhana, a special cloth used to present lovingly prepared food for guests in Bangladesh.
AND, if you like to wear your home decor, this runner makes a show-stopper of a scarf!
This kantha table runner is skillfully made in the rural areas of Jessore, a district in SW Bangladesh famous for the high quality needle skills encouraged there.
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.
