Kantha material consists of layers of old saris that are then quilted/stitched together. It’s a traditional Indian technique to reuse old material giving it new life in another form. Its vintage, which implies that something has lived a life long before reaching you, so each piece is unique and comes with imperfections, which really only adds to their charm. Fading, patching and wear, all contribute to what makes the vintage kantha so desirable. Each piece comes with a personality. But if you’re expecting an immaculate condition Indian throw that is in factory-condition, these are not the blankets for you.
This particular piece is light weight with a neutral base with decorative embroidered stripes throughout and decorative patches. There is a pink and green hue about the material with some blues.
