These colourful kantha stitch throws are totally beautiful. Each one has been carefully hand stitched using back to back recycled saris. The kantha work is of a very high standard - these are genuinely old vintage pieces, rather than 'new made to look old'. With the increased popularity of kantha over recent years, these genuine vintage pieces of such a high standard are becoming increasingly rare. Shakti hand picks each work of art and each one is TOTALLY unique!

Please note that the colours and designs will vary from the photographs - if you would prefer to speak to us about current availability, please telephone our shop during working hours and we can discuss or send you images.
125 x 210 cm Single Bed Size really....or you could make into curtains, throws for seats, cushions etc etc....
We love pretty much anything embroidered with kantha stitch. Maybe it's from years in India - but there's something so enriching about hand kantha, or gudri stitch as it is sometimes called. In this case, the hand work is totally amazing. It is of a very high standard and vintage throws like these are becoming more and more rare to find. They have been sourced from a member of the British Association for Fair Trade Shops and Suppliers (BAFTS - see our ethical buying policy for more details) and so although they're genuinely old pieces, a fair price has been paid for each piece. If you love vintage fabrics too, then you will just love these throws. All one offs, but loveliness guaranteed...just speak to us if you want specific colours or designs and we will try our best to match your needs.
