Where our Kantha comes from
The Story Behind Our Kantha
Kantha is a centuries old tradition from the Bengali region of India, where old cotton Sari's turned incredibly soft with time are repurposed, hand embroidered and turned into Kantha cloth. This cloth was then made into useable products like blankets and baby swaddles. I partner with families and charitiy organisations in India & Bangladesh to bring you beautiful handmade, sustainable Kantha.
