Boho Kantha Quilt Throw BedSpread with Needlework and Zari Border
***This item was originally listed at $120 **
This listing is for a vintage, cotton, hand quilted using Kantha embroidery quilt throw bedspread or rug as shown in pictures. This is a finely quilted throw lovingly made years ago for gifting on special occasions. Excellent condition with needlework on top of extremely fine kantha quilting. A luxurious zari fabric (fabric with interwoven silver and gold color threads) was added to it. This particular quilt with a yellow colored fabric uniformly separating it into two halves would also be perfect for use as a bed runner when folded width wise. This is one of a kind, no two are alike. Fully reversible.The bed used in pictures is a queen size bed - as you can see the bedspread covers the entire bed.
MATERIAL: pure cotton.
Dimensions: 64 inches width x 90 inches length
Color : multicolored as shown in pictures
Weight of the quilt: ~4.4 lbs ... twice as heavy as a normal Kantha throw.
Care : Gentle machine wash in cold water, hang dry OR dry clean. This will not shrink or bleed color if care instructions are followed.
Vintage Process of Creation: 8-10 layers of vintage cotton sarees (Indian wrap around dress) were hand quilted together using Kantha stitch. To make this throw more special than daily use Kantha quilts, extremely fine quilting was done to the quilt, needlework done on top of quilting and a border were added for cohesive look. Extremely high number of kantha hand stitches per inch, renders this Kantha quilt throw also suitable for use as a one of a kind rug among other uses. It also imparts it weight and longevity. Perfect for all seasons.
Condition: Good vintage condition. I have up cycled and restored this quilt by repairing
any holes that existed using hand quilting, washing out stains and trimming extra threads. That being said this item was originally created in villages of India so minor imperfections such as dust marks, blemishes might still exist and are considered to add to its uniqueness and charm.
This quilt has been restored, washed and stored in a smoke-free home and although I love pets, I don't have one.
*****More information about the provenance/story of this item ********
This kantha quilt was originally part of the my own wedding trousseau trunk or of a family member or someone from my village, decades ago. Due to age, use and at times neglect, some of them had holes, stains and frayed edges. I did my best to restore it to its original state by repairing holes, using kantha hand quilting stitches. Big stains (if present) were also covered up with clean
fabric patches using hand quilting.Then my daughter and I washed the smaller stains out and repaired the frayed edges, as much as possible. All of this and restoration work was done with my own hands using cotton threads, cotton fabric patches and needle.

Wonderful embroidered shawl!!
Beautiful!! Very happy :)
The hand crafted vintage kantha quilt throw I ordered is absolutely beautiful. The combination of colors on the front and reverse side and the detailed hand stitching are amazing. It is even more beautiful than the photo.
The churidar leggings are great and will be perfect with tunics.
Artisans of India is a very honest seller and have great communication. They are so appreciative of positive comments. They work very hard on their beautiful handcrafted items and the colors and designs reflect the beauty of India.
I have purchased from this seller many times and have always gotten great service. I love everything I have gotten from her...tunics, bags, shawls... I get lots of compliments on the bags and am excited to get the latest one. It is just as cute in person as the photo shows.
