Kantha (meaning "patched cloth") is both a tradition and a craft. We use kantha to refer to the small, straight, running stitch that quilts our sari-cloth blankets together.
The tradition of kantha, originated in the Bengal region of eastern South Asia, captures a long history of making something useful & beautiful out of discarded cloth.
All our products are made by vulnerable & at-risk women in Bangladesh, including survivors of trafficking & exploitation.
Our production partner, Basha, is a generous, safe, kind- & whole-hearted business that employs these women in dignified, sustainable work.
— kantha minis are most often bought as baby gifts, or as a lap blanket for a cold office, wheelchair, or sporting event
— classic kantha throws are our bestselling, multipurpose gift. Customers & gift recipients use them on the sofa or patio, as a bed runner or for extra bedding warmth, as travel blankets, and as a burst of color in any space. Silk blend throws offer the same, but with a level up in elegance.
— large kantha throws are used around the home for decor and snuggling, or on a twin or double bed. They are also common as gifts for weddings, graduation, and other big milestones.
— special kantha quilts are embroidered worlds of art to be a showpiece accessory in your decor, or for textile-lovers
