Our Kantha waistcoats 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. Each piece is unique, with a different design and colours on each side. As the material is vintage, sometimes there are small blemishes and even the odd patch.
