Our Kantha Market Bags are upcycled from Vintage Indian Kantha Quilts.
KANTHA (meaning patched cloth) is the tradition of producing unique blankets with a straight running stitch embroidery (usually by hand!!) out of discarded or unused items.
Each Kantha blanket makes around 4-6 bags however no two bags will be completely alike. They will have slightly different print placements and unique quirks.
REVERSIBLE ~ turn inside out and you have 2 bags in one!
As these are made from vintage Kantha blankets there may be slight imperfections such as small mend patches or marks, but this only adds to the uniqueness of each piece... what journey has this Kantha been on? Who has used and loved and mended before me? I love the idea of this..... but if you are expecting a new bag then these aren't for you as they do have that vintage feel.
Perfect for shopping, markets, nappy bag, beach days or use for all your daily essentials.
Gorgeous eco friendly gift.
As these have continuous cotton stitch throughout the fabric, they are strong and durable.
