Special Edition Kantha Cardigan - PearlRegular price $298.00
These are a special limited edition set of kantha quilt cardigans made in collaboration with Sarah James of Whoorl. These kantha cardigans are made of luxurious, heavier weight quilts, have closely spaced lines of stitching, and unique color ways.
These have big front pockets and measurements are the same as my normal kantha quilt cardigans.
Note that the front and back are different on this one--check out the pictures!
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.
