Kantha plaids & bedcovers

Upcycling at its best

Kantha (meaning: “patched cloth”) refers to both the tradition of producing these unique, quilted blankets (making something useful and beautiful out of discarded items), as well as the craft and stitch itself (a small, straight running stitch). These blankets are made from upcycled sari (local traditional women’s clothing in India)after being washed and selected by colour. The remaing sari pieces become beautiful plaids and bedcovers. 

Each plaid is unique, so no two in the world are alike. So you get a unique piece in your home. Each product is handmade. For this reason it may have some minor ‘imperfections’. These characteristics, which differ from product to product, are a guarantee of absolute authenticity. 100% handmade with love, especially for you.

A plaid for everyone

They come come in 2 size: Bedcover (250×250 cm) and plaids (140x200cm). Each of them is a gorgeous example of circular deco products. €135

Who made your plaid and bedcover?

“When I started working at the workshop of Solid in India, I did not have any clue about weaving. I asked the master weavers how they were able to weave so nicely and without any problems as I found it very difficult. Someone told me that I would never be able to weave like them because I am a woman. I took his words as a challenge. I worked very hard to become the weaver I am today. With each product I make, I strive for perfection. Some say I am “the second Latif” (Current Master weaver) in terms of weaving since there is very little difference in the quality of the products we both make. This makes me very proud.” – Shashi Kachcap
