Each of our one-of-a-kind Kantha Quilts have been hand-stitched by craftswomen in rural North India using traditional methods iconic to the region. These unique and beautiful throws are handmade using layers of hand block printed fabric quilted together with thousands of small stitches.
Beautifully versatile, these baby quilts are perfect for cots, and childresn beds as well as making great play mats! They can also be used as small throws, wall hangings, tablecloths, floor mats... the opportunities are endless... Either way, we are sure this Kantha will be cherished for years to come.
The process of block printing is both labor and time intensive, requiring a tremendous amount of skill. The artisans who make these pieces work with their hands from begging to end of the production process, from hand-looming the cotton, to carving the printing blocks, to dying the fabric.

Please note: Each wooden printing block used to make this rug is made and applied by hand onto the fabric, which means each rug bears the unique marks of its maker. This is not considered a fault but only adds to the unique charm of each piece, but tells the rich story of this ancient craft.
