These quilted kantha blankets are designed to give old saris a new life. Six layers of vintage saris are stitched together by hand with a running stitch. This Bengali embroidery is called kantha. The front and back of the blanket are made from different saris, selected to give a beautiful contrast. Vintage saris may have small imperfections, but every care is taken to patch them with a beautiful matching fabric.

The blankets are made in Bangladesh by an organisation that creates fair work for women. These women are given the opportunity to provide for themselves and their families in a dignified and fair way. This means the chances of them becoming victims of trafficking (again) decreases greatly.

We are committed to crafts. We encourage artisans to make products using traditional crafts and techniques. Making products mainly by hand or with easy accessible tools or common available machines. We believe this is important to keep alive.
We love handmade. We also feel strongly about preserving the world we live in. That’s why we work with our partners & artisans to stimulate using local materials and natural resources, and paying special attention to packaging & shipping.
