Kantha Throw Blanket - Red & Black
If you are taking small or giant steps toward buying better, this kantha blanket is the best place to get started. Wrapped in this blanket are the highest standards of ethical production, sustainability, and fair trade practices. A throw blanket, often thought of as a frivolous or luxury item, is now a cause-based, timeless treasure. This kantha throw blanket, made from five layers of recycled saris, was hand stitched by a woman who was a victim of human trafficking, and who is now on a path to freedom.
What is best about kantha is that the fabric that composes each blanket has already lived a full life, so your blanket does not need to be handled delicately. Your kantha blanket can go to the beach, live on the porch, or lie in the grass for a picnic. That being said, kantha blankets are also the perfect color-add to the foot of a bed dressed in white! The perfect slow (home) fashion purchase that can easily become that special blanket in your home to be kept for a lifetime.
The blanket is light and soft, 100% cotton, and loaded with the vibrant colors indicative of Indian prints.
