Multilayer Indian Kantha Blankets (Throw Size)

$140.00

Kantha quilts are hand sewn blankets made of recycled cotton saris (a traditional, flowing women’s garment in India) stitched together…every piece is stitched to the next, edges are hand sewn, and they are hand quilted. They are SO soft and snuggly, the perfect couch blanket that everyone will love.

These are multilayer blankets with 5-7 separate cotton layers, thicker and more finely made than a regular kantha blanket. Yours may even have decorative stitching and edging!

Size: Throw / Twin (56 x 86 inches)

These are fair trade, made by women working at home looking to make additional income for their families. These are NOT the blankets you see on Amazon or eBay. Aside from being higher quality, many so-called Kanthas are produced commercially and/or not in India…funds from sales are directly helping people who work hard and live under difficult conditions. The ladies making these are given the fabric already purchased in bulk, and paid per blanket (pay price depending on size). Imperfections and patches should be expected!

Care Instructions: Wash by hand or on gentle cycle, air or tumble dry.
