Kantha is a traditional type of embroidery used to preserve and re-use cotton saris, in small ethnic communities in Bengal, India. Harabu House's reversible kantha throws are original, one-of-a-kind pieces using cotton fabrics in beautiful colors. These saris are stitched together with tiny running stitches to form a slight delicate quilted effect. These original pieces are perfect for the end of your bed or draped on your couch, for that sophisticated elegance, or to curl under. The stitches also add aesthetic value to the throws. Due to its age, each piece is delicate and the colors are mellowed due to years of washing. Spot clean only recommended.
