*****More information about the provenance/story of this item ********
This kantha quilt was originally part of the wedding trousseau trunk of a family member or member of my village, decades ago. Due to age, use and at times neglect, some of them had holes, stains and frayed edges. I did my best to restore it to its original state by repairing holes, using kantha hand quilting stitches. Big stains (if present) were also covered up with clean fabric patches using hand quilting.Then my daughter and I washed the smaller stains out and repaired the frayed edges, as much as possible. All of this repair and restoration work was done with my own hands using cotton threads, cotton fabric patches and needle.
Process of Creation: layers of vintage cotton sarees (Indian wrap around dress) are hand quilted together using Kantha stitch. Extremely fine hand quilting.To make this marriage trousseau item more special than daily use kantha quilts, a border was added around the quilt. Extremely high number of kantha hand stitches per inch, makes this quilt slightly stiffer, imparts it longevity, weight and renders this kantha quilt throw suitable for use as a one of a kind rug along with other uses such as a throw. Perfect for all seasons.

Wonderful embroidered shawl!!
Beautiful!! Very happy :)
The hand crafted vintage kantha quilt throw I ordered is absolutely beautiful. The combination of colors on the front and reverse side and the detailed hand stitching are amazing. It is even more beautiful than the photo.
The churidar leggings are great and will be perfect with tunics.
Artisans of India is a very honest seller and have great communication. They are so appreciative of positive comments. They work very hard on their beautiful handcrafted items and the colors and designs reflect the beauty of India.
I have purchased from this seller many times and have always gotten great service. I love everything I have gotten from her...tunics, bags, shawls... I get lots of compliments on the bags and am excited to get the latest one. It is just as cute in person as the photo shows.
