A captivating piece, beautifully patchworker by Indian artisans using various block & hand printed as all as vintage materials, making this piece totally unique & a one-off.
Finished with a fine "Kantha Stitch" & a patchworked "Batik" border.
"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.
