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 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).
If you’re looking for a pop of color to brighten up your room, this is a fun way to go! To buy these items, go to Wanderloot.com
