Cotton Throw - Saffron & Deep Mauve

$165.00

One of a kind up-cycled cotton Kantha stitched throw.

  • Super soft cotton layers of cotton saris hand-stitched together
  • Single bed size: 200cm x 100cm
  • Add colour, character and warmth to a sofa, a bed or your favourite chair

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 saris have been repurposed over the generations rather than end up in a landfill. We think Basha's workmanship is some of the best in 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 works in a safe and caring work environment, earns a livable wage, and has an established savings program.  Each has given life skills training and specific training for her Basha enterprise role 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 blankets' colours and patterns. If you would prefer to see more photos of a specific blanket, please contact us. We would be happy to supply you with them.

The fabric is recycled cotton, so it is very soft and snuggly, along with the endearing signs of some fading. In thinning cotton areas, the tradition is to carefully sew a  patch from the same sari over this portion, and each blanket may feature this craft. 

SKU B20-KTSC

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 saris are washed before they are sewn and are rewashed before shipping. They arrive soft, clean and beautiful.

If you are not happy with your blanket, we offer you a 100% money-back guarantee.

Please return it to us, unused and in its original condition and packaging, within 30 days of purchase. We will also need proof of purchase to refund you fully. It's that easy.
