Our jackets are made from quilts which were originally stitched together from saris, softened from wear and washing, to make a new fabric. This tradition originated in Bangladesh and Kantha refers to the running stitch rather than the piece. As the material is vintage, sometimes there are small blemishes and even the odd patch.
