Vintage Galicha Kantha 197
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 proper woven carpet) but probably better to use them folded across the back of a sofa or as a bold wall hanging.
The first six photos show the decorative embroidered side of the textile and the last photo the reverse side. The fifth photo shows a repair, otherwise this piece is in good condition.
Size: 1.16m wide x 2m long (W47in x L79in).
100% Cotton. Hand wash or dry clean. This item has been washed in the UK and is ready to use.
