Our matching set of kantha quilts includes a standard throw & a mini, both made from the same one-of-a-kind, paired sari cloth; perfect for gifting to a new mom & baby, family members, or friends separated by distance!
Kantha throw quilts are six layers of vintage saris, hand-stitched together by women in Bangladesh using a traditional kantha stitch.
Made of 100% reclaimed cotton sari cloth
This set includes two blankets: one "standard" throw (approx. 2 m x 1 m / 6'8" x 3'3") and one "mini" kantha, half the size of the standard throw (mini = approx. 1 m x 1 m / 3'3" x 3'3")
The two blankets are stitched over approximately 35 hours (4 days) by hand (depending on experience).
