Colourful, Handstitched Kantha Quilts for Sale

These colourful bedspreads are the perfect warm-weather cover during summer or use them as an added layer of warmth in winter... Also looks great as a throw at the end of your bed (and a place for the naughty dog to lie).

Kantha quits are artisan hand stitched with meticulous care, they have all the character of hand finished textiles and as such each one will be unique. Slight variations in appearance are to be expected and celebrated as no two items are exactly alike. "Kantha work" is a family skill (an embroidery) passed on from mother to daughter, originating from the north eastern states in India, wherein old saris, dhotis & old cloth pieces are stitched together using the running stitch to make light weight quilts or throws.

Eco friendly, sustainable bedding

 

At Eco Chic, we are passionate about preserving the environment and supporting Fair Trade agreements. We only supply products that are both socially and economically sustainable. Oura Kantha Quilts are completely hand made in India using time-honored techniques, thus providing the dual benefit of creating jobs for people (not machines) and promoting historical and cultural handicraft techniques. Eco Chic is passionate about supporting the use of traditional methods to ensure these age old skills are passed down through the generations and not lost. Purchasing a product such as this helps give women in regional communities an income beyond their local markets and creates a positive economic benefit to enable them to support themselves and their community. Fair Trade not only creates justice in international economies, it supports communities to become self-sufficient and secure for the future.
