The hand embroidered stitch is called ‘kantha’, a practice native to Bangladesh and West Bengal typically carried out by rural women in groups and passed down the family lines. This technique is rooted in sustainable practices, being a way to use up scrap fabrics and up-cycling old saris to create beautiful pieces for the home.

Each stitch is applied totally by hand which not only naturally softens the fabric the more its handled, but also creates a unique dimpled texture on the fabric surface that we just love. We love the modern interpretation of a traditional technique, a lightweight yet super cosy piece, engrained with the care, love and pride that has gone into it.
