Purpose Silk Blend Kantha Throw
Kantha silk blend throw blankets are six layers of vintage saris, hand-stitched together by women in Bangladesh using a traditional kantha stitch.
- Made of a silk blend of reclaimed sari cloth: discarded by the producers for flaws, colour variation, outdated patterns, or was a remnant.
- Throws are half the length of a sari: approximately 2 m x 1 m (6'8" x 3'4")
- This kantha silk blend throw was stitched in approximately 23 hours or more (depending on experience)
- Handcrafted by women who were previously trafficked into or otherwise engaged in formal or floating sex work (or at risk), now employed in work that brings dignity & livelihood. Read more...
