Our kantha blankets make the perfect backdrop to your picnic celebration or watching of fireworks. They're also beautiful and cozy in the home too. 
Kantha (meaning "patched cloth") is a tradition and a craft. We use kantha to refer to the small, straight, running stitch that quilts our sari-cloth blankets together.
The tradition of kantha, originated in the Bengal region of eastern South Asia, captures a long history of making something useful and beautiful out of discarded cloth.
  • Made from two layers of recycled saris
  • Handstitched with kantha embroidery
  • With blues and greens on one side and a variety of colors on the other, each throw is unique. Let us choose for you.
  • Machine-washable in cold water. Line dry*

Handmade by artisans in East India whose work on the throws enhances their access to markets and information and increases their income and productivity in a sustainable way. Through sales of their products, artisans receive improved working conditions, stable incomes, and benefits from health campaigns.
