Vintage Kantha Throw - 1262
These cotton Kanthawork throws are made using vintage fabric saris and are really enchanting. Because of the nature of this product each one is unique, and is reversible and has a different pattern on the reverse. Some of them also have little patches, fading and 'flaws', these are not faults but part of the age and wear of these throws, indicating the life they have had, and are part of their story and charm.
Who made this?
This is a family run private business that has been going for 20 years and is owned by the head of the family. They supply us with vintage cotton sari's, cushion covers and duvet covers with crazy patchwork made from old embroideries and old cotton sari's, all are recycled materials. They employ 30 men and women directly and 1000 people indirectly, these are cottage workers. In this case a large proportion are from a western part of India called the West Zone, the majority of this land is very poor, infertile, desert land. All the company's products are produced in clusters, and they employ persons on a piece work basis but pay them more than government rates. This work is much appreciated and supports a region where there is very little work available. They also support these desert people by giving them education, religious books and study materials to their children.
