Kantha: A Timeless Piece Of Art

Kantha is one of the most popular rural women in east Asia embroidery, particularly in India and Bangladesh. Often, it is used to make simple quilts or Nakshi Kantha.

A vintage Kantha quilt comprises 2-3 layers of recycled Indian saris. These could either be cotton fabrics or silk fabrics. They are usually covered with running stitches featuring a variety of floral, bird, animal, shape and everyday activities designs. Kantha embroidery is also used to embellish scarves, bags, mirror covers, boxes, pillows, etc.

The story behind Kantha Quilt

Handmade Kantha quilts originated centuries ago with some very resourceful women. Poor women in rural west Bengal in India gathered soft parts of their old cotton saris and stitched them with all-over running stitches to make blankets for their babies. 

This unique stitch was called Kantha, leading to the creation of handmade Kantha quilts. The best thing about vintage or handmade Kantha quilts is their ease of repair, especially their loose and uneven threads, which add a lot of character to the throws. They are a beautiful and refreshing alternative to mass-produced machine-made Kantha throws.

Different Patterns Of Kantha Quilts 

The beauty of Indian craftsmanship has been recognized and accepted internationally through this beautiful handcraft. Vintage Indian cotton bedspreads are available in different types;

  • Lep Kantha quilts

  • Lep Kantha quilts are much larger quilts used mostly during the winter season in places with severe winters. These king-size Kantha quilts have seven layers. Many lep Kantha quilts are patterned or designed geometrically. Trees and plants are prominently featured as motif designs.

  • Sujni Kantha quilt

  • Sujni Kantha quilts are generally four and a half feet wide and six feet long. It is frequently used as a bedspread for guests to sit on or lie on.

    The Ultimate Making Of Kantha Quilt

    Kantha means rags in Sanskrit. But these block print Indian bedspreads aren't usually made from rags. They are made from old saris and other discarded fabrics. The original purpose of these Indian block print bedspreads was to keep people warm while repurposing old material. 

    Their running stitch is a very simple, straight one. The patterns usually create a sense of creativity, spontaneity, originality, and emotion. It was often embroidered with designs that told stories, expressed wishes, and indicated the maker of Kantha quilts, similar to quilting traditions in the United States.

    The Best Options To Style A Kantha Quilt

    Kantha makes inspiring accent pieces. The bright colors, interesting patterns, and unique stitching of your blanket will catch visitors' attention. The rich colors will stand out when layered on top or draped over the end of a bed. You can achieve the same look if you have an upholstered chair or couch.

     A studio Amna Kantha quilt can add warmth and richness into a room following a strict minimalist aesthetic - unlike a harsh accent wall or a piece of furniture that might feel aggressive or out of place.

These blankets are natural alternatives to tablecloths thanks to their pretty patterns. These vintage Indian cotton bedspreads are ideal for picnics, beach days, movie nights in the park, or other outdoor adventures.
