- Our intricate, Northern-style kantha blankets are a living piece of artwork, crafted from repurposed saris in a village in Bangladesh.
- It is stitched in a traditional style of kantha for northern Bengal — dense stitching with thicker thread — with designs more elaborate in addition to the straight, running stitch.
- Blankets vary in size and thickness. As is typical in rustic kantha, these blankets are 2 - 4 layers of cloth. Details on this particular blanket below.
- Handcrafted by women in a village in Bangladesh, they work for several hours per day and complete a blanket over ~2 months. This blanket provides good work that allows her to stay in her home village without migrating to the city.

Notes on this kantha
The size of this blanket is approximately 92" x 62".
Like our classic kantha throws, special kantha are 100% cotton and will not warp or distort from heat. However, the nature of the stitching is more delicate; handle with care.
If you would like to wash your blanket in a machine, use a protective bag or cover if possible. Do not wash in a top-loading machine.
To extend the life of your kantha we recommend: limit full washing, and hang dry or tumble on low.
