Inky Blue Floral Diamond Vintage Kantha Throw

$89.00

A stunning piece, beautifully handcrafted by Indian artisans & finished off with the age old "kantha" stitch. With a stunning combination of Red & yellow florals in a diamond shape on a shaded inky blue background each piece is totally unique & made out of recycled old saris. The reverse has a cream ground with a black & orange floral pattern dispersed all over.

"Kantha work" is a family skill (an embroidery) passed on from mother to daughter, originating from the north eastern states in India, wherein old saris, dhotis & old cloth pieces are stitched together using the running stitch to make light weight quilts or throws. Thus each piece is totally unique & this embroidery renders a slightly crinkled or wavy effect to the original patchwork of materials.

Loose threads & some imperfections are characteristic of this type of handmade product.
