A very pretty piece, beautifully handmade by Indian artisans & finished off with the age old "kantha" stitch. Inspired by detailed Kalamkari art that is created by artisans in the South of India.
"Kantha work" is a family skill (an embroidery) passed on from mother to daughter, originating from the north eastern states in India, wherein old saris, dhotis & old cloth pieces are stitched together using the running stitch to make light weight quilts or throws. Thus each piece is totally unique & this embroidery renders a slightly crinkled or wavy effect to the original patchwork of materials.
Loose threads & some imperfections are characteristic of this type of handmade product.
Dimensions - To fit a double, queen to king size bed 220cms x 260cms . Can be bought with coordinating shams (shams sold separately).
