Hand-dyed Indigo Kantha Quilts & Throw Blankets | dignify

Natural Indigo Dyed Kantha Quilts

Our indigo quilts are beautiful, simple, and rich in story. If you love the look of the kantha stitch, but want something more muted, indigo kantha are a perfect choice.
  • "Kantha" quilts are six layers of sari cloth, hand-stitched together by women in Bangladesh using a traditional kantha stitch.
  • All six layers are repurposed vintage sari cloth with varying patterns. The outer two layers of our indigo kantha have been dyed using the remarkable natural indigo dye process. Learn more about indigo >
  • All stitching is in white thread. The patterns (visible through the indigo dye) do vary, as each piece of dyed cloth is unique. 
  • Machine washable! Recommended: cold wash & flat or hang dry, or tumble on low. Indigo is colorfast.
  • Dimensions: Throw: 40" x 80" (100 x 200 cm), Large Throw: 76" x 76" (200 x 200 cm)
  • 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...

Perfect Dimensions!

September 04, 2017

I just love my blanket! At first I thought that the blanket was too narrow, but now I feel like it's just the perfect dimensions! I use it all the time. - Deb Thanks for sharing, Deb! The dimensions of our throws are based on the sari cloth itself, and yes, they are a unique size, narrower than most throws. We find it's the perfect size for many, many uses, and I'm glad you've loved yours, too!

Wooowhooo!
