One-Of-A-Kind Comfort

Upcycled from vintage saris by artisans working under fair-trade practices in India, these lovely blankets feature patchwork arrangements of richly patterned cotton fabric bound by an ancient technique. To make each lightweight throw, individual saris are cut into strips and then hand stitched together with others to create a lovely, patterned pastiche. The sari swatches are then united with bright, ticked kantha stitching, a crafting technique passed down for generations. Handmade in Darjeeling, India, from 100% upcycled materials.

Due to the recycled and handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Kantha Blanket:

    This is a beautiful piece. Can use it for decoration or a nice blanket to sit while you watch the fireworks in the park. That's what I initially purchased it for, then used on a picnic as well.

      Products were great

      Service and delivery comments:

      Delivery was promised on Friday. Did not arrive on time. Another box was also late as well. These boxes were needed for Christmas presents. I paid almost $40 dollars to assure delivery of both. The company refunded only $25. Because family members were in from Oklahoma and Ohio, I had to pay postage again to send boxes costing me another $30.

      I believe uncommon goods should have refunded the entire postage for both boxes.

        Comments about UncommonGoods Kantha Blanket:

        My son gave me a warm-color kantha blanket for Mother's Day. It's beautifully hand-worked, with colors that remind me of spices, mangoes, and garden foliage. There's some tie-dye work in the fabrics, and some bold printed strips. The blanket's borders are dark-colored kantha stitches, with the two length-wise borders in a straight-rows pattern , and the two width-wise borders in a repeating-scroll pattern. The blanket lining is in paler, softer colors. I love to see the corner or edge of the blanket turned back, to show the more delicately-colored lining. The work is playful, artistic, and witty. I love it. Also, what a plus that it's upcycled, and handmade!

                I ended up ordering 2 of these blankets in order to get an attractive fabric mix. The first was quite boring, not at all like the photos. The second was very attractive and my friend absolutely loved it!!

                Comments about UncommonGoods Kantha Blanket:

                Received this as a gift from my in-laws. They were so excited to give it to us and we could not understand why until we looked at the pictures that were advertised. This is a great idea and I know that every one is different but the one we received was just 2 solid blocks of color on the front and the back was just a plane cream color that seemed more like a liner fabric than a nice blanket. I think that if you are going to sell blankets that are so simple than you should have pictures of those too.

                Comments about UncommonGoods Kantha Blanket:

                The idea behind this blanket is great. It's upcycled and providing jobs in a place where it's difficult to find work. I choose the "cool colors". Which in the example photo shows a beautiful bold color. Now we all know buying something like this means you're getting something unique and special. It also means that you might end up with a color and pattern you might not like. The latter is what happened to me. Don't get me wrong the blanket is beautiful and hand stitched. But it was not bright and the pattern was just "okay". It also needed a wash, which was fine with me but I did not have time before sending it across the country for Christmas. And the person receiving it might feel differently about getting a dirty blanket. All in all no complaints about quality, just wish the photos were a little more realistic.
