Kantha quilts are handmade from two pieces of handprinted fabric hand-stitched together in a running stitch known as a kantha stitch. One side has a pattern and the other is a block colour. Kantha quilts are used as a cover over your bed and many people will put them over their existing doona or fold them in half as a large throw. They also make excellent couch covers. Cotton is a natural textile which is warm in winter and cool in summer. Each quit will fit on a King or Queen size bed. Technically the size is King. On a queen bed the quilts hang approximately 10cm lower than a quilt throw on each side of the bed to give a generous cover.
Kantha quilts are heirloom pieces, each quilt is hand made by women groups in Jaipur India. They make a precious gift because each stitch tells the story of the women who have made it. They make excellent gifts for very special occasions. The colour of the natural dyes means the quilts blend in perfectly with any decor.
