Collection: Kantha Quilts

This ancient Sanskrit proverb perfectly sums up the essence of a Kantha Quilt — “Slowly one stitches rags, slowly one traverses the path, and slowly one climbs to the top of the mountain" ( translated)

'Kantha ' is an ancient embroidery craft that originated in the Indian subcontinent. It's mostly practiced by the rural women and is passed down from generations. 'Kantha stich' or just 'Kantha ' involves thousands of small, running, intricate stitches done by hand on soft, cotton fabrics. It also means "patched cloth ".   There are block or screen printed Kanthas, where two layers of fabric is first hand printed and then hand stitched . There is also patch work Kantha made with using two or more cotton patchwork hand-block printed fabric sheets. 

On our recent visit to a small cluster in Rajasthan, I  was fortunate to witness the art being practiced by the local, rural women. For these women , Kantha quilting is a way of life. On any given day, you will see groups of women, young and old, chatting and quilting away to glory, creating one masterpiece after another.. For them Kantha quilting is not just a means of livelihood, but a craft that reminds them of their ancestors, mostly mothers and grandmothers, and many years of traditions that they are trying to keep alive.
