Vintage Galicha Carpet Kantha 226
This galicha kantha or carpet kantha comes from Bangladesh and is made using layers of repurposed cotton that is embroidered with vivid cross-stitch embroidery in intricate geometric patterns.
They can be used as a floor covering (perhaps in a bedroom as they are not as strong as a woven carpet) but would also look lovely folded across the back of a sofa or as a bold wall hanging. They could also be used to upholster a headboard or a chair or would make a fabulous roman blind.
The first five photos show the decorative embroidered side of the textile and the last photo shows the reverse side, this piece is in very good condition. The cotton fringe is attached to all 4 sides of the kantha (but could easily be removed).
Size: 1.22m wide x 1.96m long (W48in x L77in).
100% Cotton. Hand wash or dry clean.
