Ananya | Kantha Quilt
Kanthas are layers of cloth, hand-stitched together using a traditional straight kantha stitch.
Ananya, a perfectly imperfect rainbow kantha throw that took 15 days to complete. Made up of 3 layers of hand loomed cotton, the middle layer is a stunning recycled cotton saree, visible when held up to the light. A seamless balance of tradition and the present day.
Each kantha throw is finished slightly differently with a freehand cross stitch border in black, red, green, blue and yellow.
We commissioned this collection just at the beginning of the lockdown in India. It was our way to ensure we could help artisans during this trying period. Each throw is entwined with hope and love and by purchasing a Hope throw you are directly supporting the livelihood of artisan’s dependent on traditional skills.
