A stunning piece, beautifully handcrafted by Indian artisans & finished off with the age old "kantha" stitch. With a striking combination of vibrant red & purple stripes interspersed with colourful rosettes on one side offset with a beautiful brown leaf print on the other side this piece is totally unique & made out of recycled old saris.

"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.
