New Shipment: Colorful Kantha Pillows from India

Kantha Pillow – Mumbai Style

We’re excited about our new shipment of pillows from India. These vibrant pillows feature kantha work – a centuries old tradition among rural women in India and Pakistan, typified by careful hand-stitching atop fabric. These colorful fabrics are created by using age old wood blocks dipped into natural dyes.

Kantha Pillow – Jodhpur Style

Kantha originated from the way in which Bengali housewives mended old clothes by taking out a strand of thread from the colorful border of their saris and making simple designs with them (Wikipedia).
