Hand Quilted Kantha Picnic Blanket Throw, Embroidered Geometric Motifs

Details

This listing is for a pink, vintage, pure cotton, hand quilted using Kantha embroidery quilt throw bedspread or picnic blanket as shown in pictures. This is an extremely finely quilted throw lovingly made years ago for gifting on special occasions. Each kantha throw is one of a kind, no two are alike. Fully reversible.The bed used in pictures is a queen size bed with pillow top mattress. Last two listing pictures show the backside of the quilt.

MATERIAL: 100% pure cotton.
Exact Dimensions: 58 inches width x 86 inches length
Color :
1st side - pink with yellow and black needlework (hand embroidered) geometric patterns on top of extremely fine hand quilting. Glittering zari border on two long sides adds a chic sparkle.
Second side - patchwork of different printed sarees on reverse side.
Weight of the quilt: ~5 lbs ...twice as heavy as typical kantha quilts.
Care : Gentle machine wash in cold water, hang dry in shade OR dry clean. This will not shrink or bleed color if care instructions are followed.
Process of Creation: several layers of vintage cotton sarees (Indian wrap around skirts) are 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. Geometric, needlework patterns done on top of quilting. Extremely high number of kantha hand stitches per inch augmented by geometric motifs renders this kantha quilt throw also suitable for use as a one of a kind rug, picnic blanket, bed side, flat weave rug, summer blanket among other uses. It also imparts it weight and longevity. Perfect for all seasons.

Condition: very clean, no holes or big stains. Still this is a vintage textile , minor imperfections such as patches from other colorful sarees, extra threads from quilting, minor blemishes etc. may exist and are considered to add to charm of these throws or quilts.

Rest assured, item will be double washed, all holes repaired before being sent to you. Items have been 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 part of the wedding trousseau trunk of a family member, 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 repair and restoration work was done with my own hands using cotton threads, cotton fabric patches and needle.
