Hand-sewn Kantha throw is crafted by Artisans in Calcutta, India. Each yard of sari material used for the blanket has been purchased for a fair price from impoverished areas of Calcutta. The vintage sari material is then stitched together with colorful thread to create these beautiful, softly layered cotton throws.
Our vibrant sari blankets are reversible. When you need a fresh look, just flip them over. (Image shown is of blanket folded over to show the design on both sides)
Each throw is one-of-a-kind so when it's gone, it's gone!
approximately 75 x 36"
multiple quilted layers of reclaimed sari material make this Kantha throw thicker and warmer
any small imperfections to the vintage saris (such as holes or snags) are carefully patched with matching fabric bringing out its true handmade nature
Each Sari Blanket sold benefits the men and women in one of the most disadvantaged areas of the world. We help create a better livelihood for both them and the families who rely on them. These people have been given the chance to rise above their circumstances and take back their humanity.
What better way to give than from one's hands to another. Our spirited handmade store offers gift ideas that support communities and connect cultures. Stories are shared through our handmade gifts from all over the world.

What is Fair Trade?
Fair Trade is a market based approach to solving social, economic and environmental injustice. Under Fair Trade standards, producers in developing countries are afforded economic opportunities to better their living conditions and have more control over their own lives. At the same time, environmental sustainability is given high priority as a key element in growth for current and future generations. Learn more about Fair Trade >
