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]

Rich hues of pumpkin orange and warm purple are a delightful combination of this Indian kantha quilt. A modern style kantha, in tartan vintage saree fabric made by artisans of India, constructed with thousands of tiny stitches is ideal for bedding. This Indian cotton bedspread is of mid- to heavy- weight, strong construction with coloured thread.

The rich, saturated colour of this light weight kantha throw is vibrant like a freshly-picked peach or a winter sunset. The colour combination of gold, mustard, sunset peach and reddish-brown are a unique bunch and the simplicity of the quilt’s design make it something really special. These cotton quilted throws are vintage, handmade and fair trade kantha quilts you won’t find anywhere else, as each is unique and a one-of-a-kind piece.

Available at The Kantha Project shop.
