  • 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.

Care

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.
