A beautiful vintage kantha throw, with a very pretty pink & mustard floral pattern as well as double sided, makes for a stunning throw in one's lounge or bedroom. This throw is entirely handmade with vintage cotton fabric by Indian village women & has the delicate Kantha stitch on both sides which gives it a warm & rustic touch.
"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.
