Hand Washing Your Kantha Quilt
The kantha quilt was traditionally washed by hand in India and Bangladesh. This is still the best option for cleaning your blanket to reduce the risk of pulls. For best results, fill a bathtub with cold to lukewarm water (below 30°C/86°F) and use a mild detergent.
Each kantha has wildly varied colours and patterns, but you'll notice that they always go well together. Who wouldn't love these appealing and gleaming kantha blankets? They bring new colours and a sense of history into the home.
These kantha quilts contain contrasting patterns on both sides, which is one of its many unique features. Typically, one side has a bold, heroic print while the other is more delicate. So, if you prefer to switch up your decor frequently, these are practically two blankets in one!

Kantha is a type of embroidery typical of Indian states of West Bengal and Odisha, and in Bangladesh. Old saris are stacked on each other and hand-stitched to make a thin piece of cushion, light weight quilts, kantha throws, bedding, blankets, yoga mats, table cloths, bedspread and various other kantha items.
