Kantha throw - blue pink gold silk
This plaid is made of five vintage saris which are sewed together on top of each other with the Bengali kantha technique to create a sturdy blanket. This means that every blanket is unique and differs from front and back. The kantha technique is very often used in India and Bangladesh to recycle textiles into warm plaids and has been used for centuries to create nice baby blankets! The kantha plaid we offer here are made of vintage cotton and silk saris: in some places the fabric is worn and desaturated by exposure to sun intensive use. The soft pastel colours that can be seen in the blankets is what attracted us to these creations. We think the worn look gives the blanket authenticity and add to an enjoyable atmosphere in a living space! The Kantha Throw is ideally used as a extra layer on bed, on the couch or use it as a yoga mat! During warm weather, you can also use it as a baby blanket or picknick blanket outside!
