Trending- Kantha

I love to trend spot! This month I am seeing an increase in Kantha a traditional  method for making blankets from India. The Hallmarks of Kantha include layers of fabrics, running stitch quilting and stitch rows very close together.

As Kanthas are traditionally blankets, they are an easy addition to your home as a simple throw for the sofa or bed. They can also be table coverings, drapes, pillows and accessories like handbags! Here are some great Kantha pieces I have found on the web.
