Cotton & Luxe Double Blanket - Cherry Cafe
Do you have a room that is beckoning for a touch of life, colour and character? Imagine adding the beautiful style and story of this kantha blanket to it.
This deluxe edition features the sophisticated fabric reserved for very special occasions saris. Our makers use the remnants to craft a luxurious blanket and match it with one of their recycled cotton fabrics.
It takes 2-3 days of careful hand stitching in even and straight rows with 6 layers of cloth 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: 200 X 200 cm
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 and length.
Washing advice: This blanket has been kantha stitched by a Bengali woman who has now been restored from a high risk situation. Her signature is in the corner of the blanket. Read more about locally recognised fair trade organisation, Basha.
