Kantha Today

  • Today, the rich tradition of kantha has gained popularity in the West; no surprise, given the beauty, intricacy, and "wow" factor of each piece.

  • As we culturally trend away from disposable consumer goods, and towards meaningful, well crafted goods with a low environmental impact, kantha blankets happily fit the bill. 
  • The cloth is repurposed, which means no new dyes or inks (except for the environmentally happy natural indigo blankets), no by-products of production; the only factory-produced supplies we use are thread and new, undyed, natural cotton (for our modern quilts).
