Olive Mosaic Mid Kantha Blanket
Is there a room that is beckoning for a touch of life, colour and character? Imagine adding the beautiful story of this kantha blanket to it. Each side is unique, one a mix of olive green, magenta and mustard in a mosaic pattern. The other side a rich purple-blue floral pattern on a off white background. We are sure this blanket will become a vintage family treasure.
Made from reclaimed cotton saris. It takes 2-3 days of careful hand stitching in even and straight rows with 6 layers of vintage saris to create this beautiful piece of work. This ancient craft of kantha stitching has meant many sari's have been repurposed over the generations. We think Basha's workmanship is some of the best from its region!
The other delightful aspect is that this blanket is unique. Only one can be made from the sari cloth.
Dimensions: 1mt x 2mt.
Colour and Pattern: We have tried to capture all the colour and pattern in this blanket in the images. There are four images of the blanket folded the hanging rack showing the pattern that extend across its full width.
Washing advice: These cotton throws 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 blanket, we suggest you limit the number of washes.
The sari's are washed before they are sewn and are washed again before shipping. They arrive soft, clean and beautiful.
This blanket has been kantha stitched by a Bengali woman who has now been restored from a high risk situation. After twelve months of support and training she now has a safe work place which also provides supportive care for her family.
