Upcycled Kantha Saree Cover, Double Sized. Assorted Patterns and Colours.
Kantha stitching is a traditional Bengali craft passed from one generation to the next. It involves stitching or embroidering patterns onto fabric, to create a design - sometimes it is a repetitive design as in our Kantha Saree Covers.
Rows of stitches is the kantha technique, straight lines or curves create the embroidery on clothing, sarees or throws. Our saree covers use straight rows of stitches, using contrasting colour threads.
The patterns of our covers are varied, as the fabric is upcycled and repurposed from the fabric industry in Bangladesh. Made of cotton, the covers are "back or front", with different colourways on each side. Patches are used to join pieces of fabrics so you will find small and larger patches combined to make up the cover.
Please note: These are indicative pictures and the colourway pictured probably will not be available. They are ever changing as we sell, so please let us know in the "order comments" section of checkout if you have a preference for colours / colourways.
If you have no preference, then please order and get a beautiful surprise.
