Hand-Stitched Heavyweight Kantha Throw

This quilt has been beautifully hand-painted. One side is peach and green fabric with hand-painted gold foliage.  The reverse side is a mustard/beige color with embroidered geometric designs in hot pink, yellow, and purple.

Size is approximately 96 x 71 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 this quilt was made from vintage fabrics, it does have signs of wears. 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.
