kantha quilts are hand stitched from recycled sari cloth from India. Kantha refers to the type of stitch used in the craft of embroidery. This kantha stitch gives the sari quilts their general wavy, textured quality. In rural India kanthas are offered to guests in homes as a seat, a place to rest their tea, or simply as an expression of welcome into the home.
