"Didi, didi!" (big sister in Hindi) were the words that followed me everyday while spending time with the amazing artisans making these unique throws.
This is our take on traditional kantha quilts. We source beautifully coloured deadstock fabrics in the local market. Each panel is hand-cut, sewn together, and intricately hand-finished with traditional kantha stitching to hold all the layers together. Perfect for draping at the end of a bed or on a sofa.
The artisans making our quilts are part of a co-operative that was created to educate, train and empower marginalised women including sex workers in skills such as block-printing, kantha stitching and natural dyeing whilst also teaching them other skills such as organic farming and self-defence. Over 4500 women have benefited from this initiative which follows Fair Trade principles and which we feel privileged to be a part of.
