Hand-Stitched Heavyweight Kantha Throw

This quilt has been beautifully hand-painted. One side is purple and green tie-dye with bits of gold and silver paint. The reverse is the same with an additional brown, pink and beige section with a geometric pattern. 

Size is approximately 71 x 57 inches.

 Kantha throws are hand-stitched in India. They are made from two layers of soft cotton that have been stitched together. The word kantha refers to the incredibly detailed stitching. No two are alike.

In Sanskrit kantha means "rags" which reflects the fact that kantha quilts are made from old clothing or repurposed saris. Two pieces of fabric are stitched together creating a lightweight quilt, scarf, pillow or throw. These double-sided quilts are generally made from cotton or silk. No two are alike.

This hand-stitched kantha throws is completely reversible. Made of 100% cotton. Heavier weight than a typical kantha quilt.

*Because these quilts are made from vintage fabrics, they do have slight imperfections. These are not defects, but rather a reminder of their unique, beautiful history. 

All kantha quilts come beautifully wrapped in a cute cotton tote bag that can be used for shopping, the beach, or to store your quilt when it is not in use. It also makes a beautifully presented gift.
