Our kantha silk blend quilts are beautiful works of art, hand-crafted in the best quality by surviving women working in excellent conditions.
Our silk throw blankets are made with the highest standards of quality: the cloth is ornate & vibrant, the hand-stitching is straight & consistent, the edges are finished & clean. In addition, the care & dignity paid to the artisan women is unmatched, exceeding fair trade standards.
Kantha (meaning: “patched cloth”) refers to both the tradition of producing these unique, quilted items (the act of making something useful and beautiful out of discarded items), as well as the craft & stitch itself (a small, straight running stitch in Bengali embroidery).
Are you convinced? We are thoroughly confident that you won't find a match that is as unique, versatile, rich in story, or as well-constructed as our hand-stitched, silk throw blankets.
