Savannah Kantha Cosmetic Bag features a perfect organic shaped cosmetic bag. The curved top is closed with a golden YKK zipper. The bag is made from a kantha blanket and is slightly padded. It has a zipped pocket inside the lining which is made from 100% recycled cotton. We make a limited amount of bags from each kantha blanket and therefore a difference in the colors from the picture may occur.
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 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.
