Vintage Kantha Quilt | Serpentine

Vintage Kantha Quilt | Serpentine

For centuries the making of ‘kantha dorokha’ (a two-sided quilt) has provided employment and self-expression for women in India and Bangladesh. This ancient embroidery technique uses a running stitch to bind layers of repurposed cotton sari cloth, creating a reversible upcycled throw requiring little care – a testament to its quality and hand-craftsmanship.

Draped over a sofa or at the foot of a bed, a handmade kantha throw provides a pop of color and texture. With each piece holding a storied past, no two are alike.
