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!
Our oversized quilts make great bedcovers. They will fit on the top of a queen size bed or across and down the sides of a full size bed. They look great folded at the foot of a king bed and on a twin bed too! Wrap the whole family up together to cozy up for a movie night or just around yourself several times, there are many ways to use our oversized quilts!
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.
