Luxe Blanket - Double - Silvery Amber

$315.00

One of a kind Kantha stitched luxe double blanket.

  • Features a luxury remnant sari fabric one side with up cycled soft cotton layers hand stitched together and cotton outer layer on other side.
  • Double size: 200cm x 200cm
  • Each blanket unique in pattern and colours

Afterpay is available in checkout.

A regal and luxurious double blanket features an exceptional fabric with a satin finish and often features embroidered motifs or hand painting. It is a fabric usually reserved for weddings and special events in Bangladesh. Basha has created this blanket from unused remnants of this luxe fabric and pairs it with upcycled cotton saris.

Each side features a different fabric. It takes hours of careful hand stitching in even and straight rows with six layers of saris to create this beautiful piece of work.

Kantha is an ancient craft of stitching. Many saris have been repurposed over the generations rather than end up in a landfill. We think Basha's artistry is some of the best from its region!

Meet the Makers

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 established a savings program.  According to her abilities and dreams, each has given life skills training and specific training for her role in the Basha enterprise. 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: 200 x 200 cm. 

Colour and Pattern: We have made an effort to capture all the colours and patterns in this blanket. The fabric is recycled cotton on one side and repurposed luxe fabric on the other side. The luxe side of this blanket is a very light silver which quickly picks up the hues in the room. In the product photos, you can see this where some look like pale lilac; in others, it is more flaxen.

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. If you would prefer to see more photos of a specific blanket, don't hesitate to get in touch with us, we would be happy to supply you with them.
