Kantha Quilts

Kanthas originate in Bangladesh and the eastern states of India, where women stitch together layer upon layer of old saris and tossed-aside cloth scraps from grain sacks and the like to create intricately-stitched throws and blankets. Some of these quilted pieces also get turned into cushions and pillows. There are no two kantha quilts that are alike; each quilt is unique.

100% cotton. From India.

Note: The pictures from each style illustrate both sides of the quilt - the colourful side first, followed by the more neutral side. Click on the Style number to view the patterns, and photo that follows it will be its underside.
