This product has been discontinued.

Hand-embroidered heirloom quality kantha quilt in one-of-a-kind pattern combinations and color stories for your dream bedscape. Named after one of the artisan group members to celebrate its uniqueness.

Kantha embroidery consists of a delicate running stitch. As all things crafted by hand it is imperfectly perfect, and therein lies its charm. The density of kantha embroidery makes it complex, with each quilt taking about 20 days to complete.

In this quilt, the lines are 0.5 inch apart making them dense, exquisite examples of kantha embroidery full of color and character. The end result is a breathtaking textured quilt of heirloom quality.

Each quilt is made using 6 layers of soft cotton: the top and bottom are vintage saris, and sandwiched between them are 4 layers of soft hand-loomed cotton fabric. The front and back of each quilt vary depending on how the saris are sewn together, so you get to enjoy two unique looks!

Delivery Time: In stock items are shipped within 2-3 days of order placement.

Wash & Care: Machine wash separately in cold water with a gentle detergent. Do not use bleach or a detergent with bleach additives. Tumble Dry warm. Iron using cotton settings.
