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.

She absolutely loves it! I'm happy with it as well. It's much larger than I'd expected it to be & is so uniquely beautiful. I'll probably end up ordering one for myself.

She loved the colors, the recycled nature of the material and the hand stitching. I may get one for myself!

I would buy this again

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.

beautifully worked, soft warm colors

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!

beautiful - IF you get a good fabric mix

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!!

Not even close to the examples shown

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.
