Fairly Worn Vintage Kantha Quilt

Fairly Worn Vintage Kantha Quilt

$105.00

The traditional vintage kantha quilt from Bangladesh or West Bengal typically uses contrasting fabric whole cloth panels which have been hand blocked or dyed. They are then quilted with a long running stitch, going through the layers of cloth. Instead of batting, most use a third layer of cloth sandwiched between top and back. Although light, they have a nice drape and weight.

The Vintage Kantha Quilt

 

Kantha quilts consist of several layers of recycled cotton or silk saris. they are held together by a simple, running, “kantha” stitch that is applied row after row and gives the fabric its unique, slightly wrinkled look. This kind of embroidery is most popular with the rural women of Bangladesh and West Bengal in India, who spend hour upon hour creating these wonderful textile pieces, each one-of-a-kind. Kantha quilts are decorative as well as useful – as day blankets, bed covers, curtains, wall hangings – or for sewing!

 

Average Dimensions:  218 x 141 cm or 86 x 56 inches

Fairly Worn has collected many of these quilts, often cutting them up and using them to make pillows, bags and garments. But, some are just too beautiful to go under the scissors…  Like the ones you see here! Visit Fairly Worn to see what is in stock!
