Begum Mini Kantha Blanket #2
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, in an environment guided by fair trade principles in order to produce ethical textiles. The kantha stitch is woven into the very fabric of this culture in West Bengal! Mini blankets are made from the same sari, so both sides have the same color combinations. If there is more than one picture, you will receive the Mini Blanket in the first picture.
Do you have a square table? These fit beautifully in the middle as a center piece! The Mini Blanket can be used in many ways ... as a baby blanket (they make great one-of-a-kind gifts!), for lap blankets, and they are also great travel blankets on airplanes and in cars to name just a few of the versatile functions of our mini kantha blankets!
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.
