The Kantha Dress | Large | 1
The Kantha Dress is designed to be loose fitting and free flowing. The multi layer fabric makes it the perfect winter dress layered over tights but the style can also be worn on cooler summer days or evenings. It has a round neckline with tassel ties at the back and can be worn back to front if you wish to have the tassel detail at the front. The balloon sleeves gather into the wide cuff which closes with two rows of tassel ties. The double tier skirt hem flares into an A-line shape with lots of swing and volume. The length sits just on or above the knee. She's as comfy as she is cozy.
This is part of a small batch, limited run; each piece is uniquely one of a kind.
KANTHA | ONE OF A KIND
This coat is made from Bengali Kantha Quilts. This vintage Indian textile is made using upcycled Sari's, no two are the same and so no two of our Coats are the same.
Dating back hundreds of centuries, communities of women from the impoverished region of Bengal would gather together and piece together the preservable parts of their old tattered Sari's. Combining them in a patchwork manner to create beautiful and intricate multi-layer quilts. The single running stitch, signature to the Kantha, is used to hold the layers together. Both sides of the Kantha are wearable so expect the inside of your coat to be as beautiful as the outside.
Given the upcycled nature of the Kantha, they are often perfectly imperfect, expect to find ornate patches layered over other patches. All part of the charm of this intricate tapestry of heritage, community and sustainability
