This unique item is upcycled from a vintage Kantha blanket. The kantha embroidery technique, creatively upcycles old cotton saris, that previously have been worn by Indian women, giving them new life as upcycled clothing items, blankets, or bedspreads. The old fabric are placed on top of each other and stitched together by hand, using the traditional kantha embroidery technique. This particular technique is characterized by the many rows of short, continuous stitches. This characteristic embroidery method has been used in India for hundreds of years and is especially common among women in the countryside. Each Kantha item is one-of-a-kind in both print and color combination.
