Indigo Collection launch

The Kantha Project has just launched its newest Indigo Collection!
This carefully selected range of vintage Indian kantha quilts and throws consists of just six exclusive kanthas in indigo over-dye.

These are not your average indigo kantha –
The indigo dye is dipped or printed over the original cotton saree cloth of the vintage quilt, creating a kaleidoscopic effect of motifs and patterns over existing patterns. The varied blue shades are also unique to the vintage indigo kantha. The methods and materials used to create these whimsical textiles are recycled, contributing to less waste and more re-use, resulting in an eco product.

These wonderfully dreamy quilts, in an assortment of blue shades are a new way to appreciate the kantha quilt movement. Each one is special – a one of a kind piece!

SIENNA [SOLD]

SIENNA is a tapestry of wonderful warm red & orange waves within an intricate textile print. We fell in love with the varying degrees of hues that have naturally become lighter in some parts, and deeper in others, due to the beautiful vintage saree fabric.

She is an excellent example of a light weight kantha throw – useful in a multitude of ways such as a couch throw for added colour and brightness, hung over the back of a chair in the kitchen, or even a tablecloth. This happy bright throw will lighten every space.
