Namai's Naksha Kantha Quilted jackets are not only beautiful but also carry a rich cultural heritage. Discover the fascinating world of Naksha Kantha Quilted Jackets and why they have become some of our favorite pieces at the Namai Studio. 




What is Naksha Kantha?

Naksha Kantha is a traditional quilting technique from India. This technique involves stitching together layers of repurposed vintage fabric using colorful threads to create intricate patterns and designs. The result is a beautifully textured and visually appealing jacket that stands out from the crowd.



Why are Naksha Kantha Quilted Jackets special?

What sets Naksha Kantha Quilted Jackets apart is their unique blend of tradition and style. Each jacket is a work of art, with the intricate designs reflecting the rich cultural heritage of India. The craftsmanship and attention to detail that goes into making these jackets is truly remarkable. Some of these pieces feature frayed ends, where our artisans have maintained the natural edges of the antique quilts to add some extra flare to these already gorgeous pieces. 



How are Naksha Kantha Quilted Jackets made?

The process of making Naksha Kantha Quilted Jackets is a labor-intensive one. Skilled artisans hand-stitch layers of repurposed antique kantha quilts together, creating intricate patterns and motifs. The stitching is done using a running stitch, which gives the jacket its characteristic quilted texture.
