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 and is stitched into the very fabric of its culture.
Please note that these 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.
