Vintage Kantha Quilt Blankets
Kantha embroidery comes from eastern South Asia, especially Bangladesh and the Indian states of West Bengal and Odisha. This fabric is hand-stitched together to make a creative design. Not every Kantha is the same, for they are unequally assembled. We always do our best to offer you the best assortment and quality of textiles. An assortment of colors will happen. Traditional kantha embroidery is created from a running stitch rendered by skilled Indian artisans. In fact, it's considered to be a form of artistic expression - a personal diary of sorts - told by a single set of hands. Practiced for centuries, this time-honored technique finds its way into our living spaces with pieces like this handmade blanket. Draped over the back of your favorite chair or at the foot of the bed, it adds a luscious pop of color. Approx. 60" x 80"
Made in United States of America.
