First, the “heart” of the product:
Our kantha throws are so much more than just a throw. By the creation of these beautiful items, the makers are now employed in work that brings dignity and livelihood and a brighter future. It is providing the women a fair wage, support, childcare, and ongoing education. Often these women were victims of trafficking and were at risk of, or are leaving, sex work. The throws take days to make ( (average of 3 days or 23 hours) and signify a new beginning. You are truly buying so much more than a blanket.
Now, the “details” of the product:
Kantha throws are six layers of vintage saris, carefully hand-stitched together by women in Bangladesh using a traditional kantha stitch. Read more about “kantha” here.
All throws are made of 100% reclaimed cotton sari cloth.
The Bohemian Collective sources all kantha products through “Basha”. Read more about Basha and their mission here.
- Throws are approximately 1 metres X 2 metres.
Each throw is truly one-of-a-kind with it’s own unique variations.
