Each blanket has a story of its own, and now you have the chance to write the next chapter for this one. Made from up-cycled vintage cotton saris this blanket was handmade by a local Indian woman using the kantha stitch, which is a sewing technique that originated in West Bengal. The ladies at ReMade are highly respected and work in an environment guided by fair trade principles in order to produce ethical textiles.
Please note that our blankets are made from previously worn saris and may have some imperfections like patches or typical wear and aging. These slight imperfections tell a part of the story and add to each blanket's charm and uniqueness.
