I bought two kantha throws: one for my sister, one for myself (my second one, might I add). When I received them, and saw how beautiful they were, it took all my will power not to keep both.
When I gifted my sister her blanket, she was delighted, loving its bright colours and softness. When I shared where the blanket was made, she eagerly went online to learn more about the woman who stitched hers. Needless to say, we are both obsessed.
It is so meaningful to be able to find out more about the women's stories!
