Small Cotton Throw, Baby Blanket - Lavender Shell

$65.00

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

  • Super soft cotton layers of cotton saris hand-stitched together
  • Small size: 100cm x 100cm
  • Perfect knee rug or baby blankets

Afterpay is available in checkout.

Small, soft and snuggly, this type of kantha blanket is cherished by many, warming laps on cold winter nights, comforting children as they fall asleep and giving a touch of character and style to a room as a throw. 

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. 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, earns 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: 100 X 100 cm 

Colour and Pattern: I have made an effort to capture all the blankets' colours and patterns. There are two blankets from the same sari. 

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. If you would prefer to see more photos of a specific blanket, please contact us. I would be happy to supply you with them. 

SKU B20-KSMC

This blanket 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.

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.
