GUPTA

Beautiful swirly floral vintage print in olive and peach with blue, red and green vintage saree cotton on the reverse give this kantha throw a lively, fun and happy vibe. A very colourful and vibrant embroidered patchwork quilt that works well as cotton quilt bedding, beach throw blanket, picnic rug or simply a throw for the couch or bed to add some lively pattern and colour!

GUPTA is available now at The Kantha Project shop.

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!

Top bed kantha quilts

Kanthas are ideal for bedding – as a quilt, coverlet, bedspread, bed throw, blanket… The multiple layers of cotton make for excellent Indian cotton bedding, naturally insulative without the need for any synthetic wadding.

Being vintage, handmade and often made using natural Indian dyes (such as turmeric), they are one of the most eco-friendly, cruelty-free & sustainable quilts available. [More on this here]
