Made in India

About the Textiles UsedKantha textiles are a zero waste textile. Traditionally made at home by women, utilizing scraps and remnants of cotton sarri's and other household textiles, the layers are held together with a fine kantha stitch. After the materials have been stitched together, intricate embroidery is layered on top as a decoration and personalization. Quilts like the Cauvery Quilt that have beautiful examples of embroidery would traditionally have been made as gifts; love tokens, the birth of a child, and other special occasions. 

This piece is 20-60 years old, and bears the careful handwork of many artisans. We have worked to carefully preserve the antique patina, and dyed it by hand.

Fabric Composition: 100% Recycled Cotton 

Fabric Weight: Medium weight with a structured feel.
