Vintage Kantha Tufted Blanket is a one-of-a-kind blanket. Edges are finished with cotton bias tape on all seams. The blanket is made from vintage kantha blankets. All the kantha blankets used for this special item have been decorated with soft tufted artwork by hand with different kinds of tufted artwork. The tufting technique is traditionally used in the production of soft, hairy carpets but is also used by artisans for decoration and design.

This unique item is upcycled from a vintage Kantha blanket. A kantha blanket is made of old cotton fabrics such as saris that 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 – a method that has been used in India for hundreds of years and especially common among women in the countryside. 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. Each Kantha item is one-of-a-kind in both print and color combination.
