a perfect example of old world mixed with new.. Kantha is a traditional type of embroidery used to preserve and re-use vintage cotton saris, in small ethnic communities in Bengal, India.
kantha throws are original and one-of-a-kind pieces using vintage cotton fabrics in beautiful colors. Vintage saris are stitched together with tiny running stitches to form a slight delicate quilted effect. These original pieces are perfect for the end of your bed or draped on your couch, for that sophisticated elegance, or to curl under. The stitches also add aesthetic value to the throws.
Due to its age, each piece is delicate and the colors are mellowed due to years of washing.
at kinche we source these quilts and some designs from place of origin, benefitting not only the workers but also the community of people involved in the process of making.
all our quilts at kinche are hand selected, designed, enzyme washed and cleaned to bring you the freshest of vintage experience.
