Cotton Throw - Retro Blues

$150.00

Afterpay is available in checkout.

Made in Bangladesh from reclaimed cotton saris each side features a different fabric. It takes hours 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 rather than end up in landfill. We think Basha's workmanship is some of the best from its region!

Meet the Maker

The women of Basha are living examples of transformation. Each woman who was once vulnerable to exploitation is now secure. She is working in a safe and caring work environment, paid a livable wage and has had a savings program established.  Each one is given life skills training and specific training for her role in the Basha enterprise, according to her abilities and dreams. So she takes great pride in her work, and if you have the delight of owning one of the blankets she has hand-stitched you will find her signature is in the corner of the blanket.

Dimensions: 1m x 2m.

Colour and Pattern: We have made an effort to capture all the colours and patterns in this blanket. The fabric is recycled cotton so it is gracefully flexible, along with the endearing signs of some fading. In areas of thinning cotton, the tradition is to carefully sew a  patch from the same sari over this portion and each blanket may feature this workmanship. If you would prefer to see more photos of a specific blanket, please contact us, we would be happy to supply you with them.

SKU B20-KTSC
