Brand New in! This kantha has been washed a good few times and seen some sunny Indian drying days. The colors are quite faded, but in a nice way. This piece is oh-so-soft !

Women in India have saved their old sarees to make quilts for centuries, as old cloth was thought to be lucky, and/or have a protective effect, especially if the sarees or lungi used to make them had happy memories attached to them. Clothes worn on days where something unlucky happened are never used, and often burned.
The quilts are made with 3-5 five layers of vintage100% cotton saree's, pierced and stitched together with thousands and thousands of tiny stitches. Each one is special, and each is one of a kind. They may show signs of wear, or have little patches here and there, which only adds to their quirky charm. Some may have extra embroidery, depending on the area or village where the piece was collected. size is 80' x 50' approx. may differ a little from piece to piece.

Shipping will be signed for delivery with Royal Mail which takes 10 day to reach the USA under normal circumstances. If you buy more than one piece, then I will ship with UPS which takes just 48 hours, maybe a little longer if it includes a weekend or a bank holiday.
