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 blanket 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 handwriting of a singular woman's craftsmanship.
our kantha quilts are produced by women in meherpur, bangladesh, in cooperation with the ngo center for development and peace, which strives to empower the most vulnerable and at-risk women and children by providing them with a livelihood.
