Vintage Kantha Throw with Suzani Style Embroidery 50
This kantha throw has been handmade in India from up-cycled fabric that has been over dyed with a natural indigo dye, it has then been overstitched in chain stitch with a suzani style pattern. Kantha quilts and throws are made from layers of fabric sewn together with a tiny running stitch known as a kantha stitch.
Each side of a vintage kantha is made from different fabric. The first six photos show one side of the quilt which is a deep bottle green and the last two show the reverse side. Vintage kanthas are a handmade product, the pattern and stitching can be irregular and patches are often added to the quilts.
