Kantha Fabrics - a brief history
Kantha is a type of quilt that is meticulously created by stitching together several layers of discarded cotton saris using a decorative running stitch, entirely by hand. These fine examples of textiles originate from Bangladesh and their primary usage was a blanket to use in cold weather. They all comprise a delightful antique feel that evolves from authentic design. These charming pieces of textiles do not disappoint regarding colour, they are made in every colour under the sun.
Our favourite piece of information about Kantha quilts is that they are all completely unique and each tell their own story. These delightful quilts complement any room and feature a plethora of colourful tones and natural softness to have in your home.
