What is a Kantha quilt and why is it special you ask? “Kantha” is the Sanskrit word for rags, and old cloth was believed to provide protection from harm. For centuries, Kantha quilts have been made by Bengali women utilizing three worn saris that are stitched together with long-running stitches to make a 3-layer quilted fabric sandwich. I love these quilts because they are made from fabric with a real history and story - lives were lived in this fabric before this cardigan made it to your closet.
