Our vintage kantha quilts are Hand-stitched in India ( Bengal) from three layers of vintage recycled sari cloth. These Reversible Vintage Kantha Quilts are made 100% Organic and Eco-Friendly and One of a kind. Each blanket is totally unique!
Design and printing
Each sari is handprinted using a traditional block printing method to give it a unique look. A small wooden block with a specific pattern is tapped into a specially made mud before being applied to the fabric. This procedure is repeated until the cotton quilt is completely covered. The fabric is then sun dried for two days before the indigo dying process begins.
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!
