Kantha Content

With so many blankets that we refer to as “kantha throws”, "kantha quilts", "indigo kantha", or "kantha blankets", you might simply wonder,what is kantha?

Kantha (meaning: “patched cloth”) refers to both the tradition of producing these unique, quilted blankets (making something useful and beautiful out of discarded items), as well as the craft and stitch itself (a small, straight running stitch in Bengali embroidery).
