Product Information
These beautiful cotton throws, are stitched together by women in India using fabric from their favourite saris. Acting as a 'dowry' for very poor Indian women, these patchwork throws would be taken with them once they were married. The name Kantha comes from the kind of stitch used when making the throws. A Kantha stitch is a traditional technique derived from the way Bengali women mended old clothes. A strand of thread is plucked from the sari’s colourful border and incorporated into the decorative design.
Due to years of washing, the once vividly bright colours of the saris are now mellowed, acting as a constant reminder of the history behind these one of a kind throws. Made from 100% cotton, each one of these delicate throws has unique pattern and colour variations, making each throw entirely individual.

100% Pure cotton.
Product dimensions: Min 150cm, max 220cm. Widths will vary.
Due to the delicate nature, do not machine wash. Spot wash with mild detergent only.
