please note that the vintage materials we use for our creations sometimes have small flaws - staining, small holes, patched-up areas and the like. usually they are not very noticeable - on the contrary, they often add character to a piece! we always machine or hand-wash our vintage fabrics before use.

care instructions
hand-wash in warm water. please note that the edges may fray a bit with every laundry. you can cut excess fuss off!

about kantha quilts
kantha quilts consist of several layers of recycled saris held together by a simple, running, 'kantha' stitch that is applied row after row and gives the quilt its unique, slightly wrinkled effect. this kind of embroidery is popular with the rural women of bangladesh and west bengal. it can take weeks to create one of these wonderful textile pieces, each one-of-a-kind, each carrying the distinct 'hand-writing' of a singular woman's craftsmanship.
