During our last trip to India we hand selected quite a few beautiful vintage kantha quilts.
These quilts have large fields of colour and brilliant patchwork all covered with tight running stitches. The quilts are medium weight but with a large personality.
Kantha quilts are made for household use in rural parts of Bengal and Bangladesh. Almost every woman knows how to make one and every woman has her own individual style. These quilts are used as bedcovers, blankets, tablecloths, picnic blankets, car blankets, couch blankets ... there is no limit to the utility of these textiles.
Each one is a story.
