Product description

A pair of reversible sari placemats, finished with traditional kantha-stitching, ethically handmade in Bangladesh

Overview

  • Gift wrapping available

Dimensions

Approximately 33 x 45 cm (approx. 13 x 17.5 in)

Made from

Pieces of sari cloth are carefully matched and stitched in straight, even rows to brighten your table. It's double-sided so you can choose one colour and pattern one day, and the other side the next.

Bright colours, bold prints, charming patchwork and unique pairings reflect local vibrancy and spirit and ensure no one else has a table setting exactly like yours. The word 'kantha' means 'patched cloth' and Bangladeshi and Northwest Indian women have made functional items like this out of preloved sari cloth for centuries.

These stunning kantha products are superimposed layers of vintage saris, carefully hand-sewn with neat rows of contrasting thread to form a beautiful finished scarf, set of table linens or throw. Each item is made from 100% reclaimed vintage cotton sari cloth.

Each pair of unique placemats was handcrafted by women who were previously (or at risk of being) trafficked into or engaged in formal or floating sex work. Our grassroots NGO partner ensures they are safe, healthy, and now employed in work that brings them dignity & financial independence. Our kantha products are all made in a generous, safe space by vulnerable and at-risk women who can now work with dignity because of purchases like yours. We stand by our products and are confident that you won't find a product that is as unique, versatile, rich in story, or as well-constructed as our beautiful hand-stitched kantha products.

COLOURS: Brown and yellow pattern with border one side, mustard yellow retro floral design with red border on the other side

MATERIALS: Vintage cotton fabric from repurposed saris

CARE: Dry cleaning is recommended to maintain the vibrant colour and texture of your vintage cotton kantha product
