"Kantha" quilts are layers of sari cloth, hand-stitched together by women in Bangladesh using a traditional kantha stitch.
Our natural kantha throws are made with unbleached cotton sari fabric; they are not a true white, but more like "ivory", or "off-white".
Throws are half the length of a sari: approximately 2 m x 1 m (6'8" x 3'4")
Machine washable! Recommended: cold wash & flat or hang dry, or tumble on low.
These throws have been hand-crafted in Bangladesh by women who were previously trafficked into or otherwise engaged in formal or floating sex work (or at risk). Now, they are employed in work that brings dignity & livelihood.Read more...
