This beautiful Kantha quilt will brighten your home with colors that may look more vibrant in person due to the fact that I had poor lighting for this photo. This Kantha throw blanket is 100% cotton. Vintage Kantha quilts are one of a kind pieces that make a statement through its quality craftsmanship and beauty.
These amazing quilted blankets are designed and crafted from artisans in developing countries who need opportunities to improve their living conditions. This fair trade practice is a way to provide a sustainable income for those people who live in impoverished areas.
Today’s buyers want to spend their money on products that speak to them with a story and a history that connects them with the world. There are many reasons to support the fair trade market system. Buying a Kantha bedding item is a wonderful way to discover the quality and workmanship that goes into each piece.
A Kantha product is uniquely designed to be functional and beautiful. Kantha quilts are made from different pieces of used vintage sari material that have been stitched together by skilled artisans. The sari material is layered and stitched together and then embroidered simple straight stitches keep the front and back of the throw together while also adding an interesting detail. Since these pieces are all made by hand, they are one of- a- kind pieces. This beautiful work of art is a great addition to any bohemian styled decor or world travel type vibe. It is a style similar to that found at World Market, Pier 1, Home Goods, Urban Outfitters, or Anthropologie.
