One of these products the women can easily craft from at home during the lockdown are these beautiful Kanthas. Kanthas are quilted patchwork blankets, which are usually recycled from the women’s old or damaged Sarees in India. These bright and colourful quilts are very popular in Indian households and used as bedsheets or warm blankets. Instead of Sarees we decided to use our leftover materials from the workshop, which are sometimes unavoidable when cutting patterns for garments and too small to use them for other accessories. Unfortunately, the production of these beautiful quilts is way too time-consuming for the “normal” business mode, that is why we will sell the Kanthas in a very limited edition.
The Kanthas are beautiful but at the same time a great deal of work. Many small patches have to be sewn together first to create a big blanket and in a second step, the whole Kantha is quilted by hand with a lot of small stitches to fix the single layers, to make the blanket even warmer and also more beautiful. In order to finish one quilt it takes a couple of weeks. This is why the price is consequently quite high.
