Zinger Silk Blend Kantha Throw


  • Kantha silk blend throw blankets are six layers of vintage saris, hand-stitched together by women in Bangladesh using a traditional kantha stitch.
  • Made of a silk blend of reclaimed sari cloth: discarded by the producers for flaws, colour variation, outdated patterns, or was a remnant.
  • Throws are half the length of a sari: approximately 2 m x 1 m (6'8" x 3'4")
  • This kantha silk blend throw was stitched in approximately 23 hours or more (depending on experience)
  • Handcrafted by women who were previously trafficked into or otherwise engaged in formal or floating sex work (or at risk), now employed in work that brings dignity & livelihood. Read more...

I opened the package and gasped

July 17, 2018

Hi there! I just wanted to say that I so enjoy reading your newsletters each Saturday morning. I am a no spam person and have essentially unsubscribed from all mailing lists. Except yours. Also, I am a repeat customer. New kantha day is the best day. My husband and I are currently becoming recertified for foster parenting, as the youngest three of our seven children were adopted through foster care, and one of the first things I purchased was a mini kantha. Because, I mean, what else do you need? We will be welcoming a preschool, or younger, aged little boy into our home and obviously only a kantha will do for his special blanket. We’re not sure how long each boy will stay, maybe for always or maybe a day, but you better believe they will all have a very special kantha-lovey. And by the way, the blanket I chose is perfect. I opened the package and gasped. It’s exactly what I wanted.  — Candi Brewster

Kantha Arrival

April 16, 2018

My kantha arrived today under gray skies and chilly temps in anticipation of snow (It’s April, right?!) My “silence” kantha was anything but… it was a shout of sunshine that filled my room with rays of color… thank you.  — Birgit
