Condition : This quilt has been DOUBLE washed to remove all big stains and any holes have been repaired. No odors. Still this is a vintage textile, hand crafted years back in villages of India, so minor imperfections such as extra threads from quilting, evidence of wear etc.may exist and are considered to add to charm of this sofa throw or quilt. I specialize in collecting and restoring quilts with minimal patches/patches that blend-in with rest of the quilt so that quilt does not look odd.
This quilt has been DOUBLE washed and is stored in a smoke-free home. 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 wedding trousseau trunk of a family member or member of 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 repair and restoration work was done with my own hands using cotton threads, cotton fabric patches and needle.
