Vintage Kantha Throw - Soft Pastels
This colourful kantha quilt has been handmade in India from a patchwork of up-cycled fabrics. It would be perfect for a child's bedroom or playroom sofa as patches of cartoon fabric depicting sheep have been sewn into the quilt. Kantha quilts are made from layers of sari fabric sewn together with a tiny running stitch known as a kantha stitch. Extra embroidery is often added, and you will never find two vintage quilts that are the same.
Use as a throw, bed cover, picnic blanket or table cloth. They can also be used in your interior design projects to make curtains, blinds and cushions and to cover headboards, footstools or chairs.
This kantha is similar on each side. The first three photos show one side of the quilt and the last two photos show the reverse side. Vintage kanthas are a handmade product, the pattern and stitching can be irregular and tiny patches are often added to the quilts.
Size: W1.66m x L2.24m (W65in x L88in). This quilt will fit a single bed. It will also go across a double and UK king/US queen bed as a throw.
