Kantha Indigo, Placemat Set
The rich tones of indigo are hard to ignore. From dark navy through to blue, teal and dark purple, they evoke a naturally regal feel. We are delighted that Basha has added this to their quality kantha stitched placemat set. Using new cotton sari's as their base cotton fabric, they have tried and tested various natural indigo dying techniques to find the best result.
Each set includes four placemats.
It takes hours of careful hand stitching in even and straight rows to create this beautiful piece of work from repurposed saris. This ancient craft of kantha stitching has meant many saris have been recycled over the generations.
We think Basha's workmanship is some of the best from its region!
Dimensions: 33 x 45 cm
Colour and Pattern: Natural Indigo dye has a natural variation of intensity depending on the cotton sari print used. So each piece is unique and will not be the exact match to the images shown. Each has subtle darker patterns visible from the original sari print which give the placemats interest and character.
If you would like more images to help you make purchasing decision please get in contact with us.
Washing advice: The indigo dye has been fixed, but Basha suggests you wash your placemats separately from other items. These cotton placemats can be machine washed on a gentle, cold cycle. The close stitching help maintain the shape of the cloth. To extend the life of the placemats, we suggest you limit the number of washes
