Kantha Waistcoat – Pillarbox Red with Floral Emblems. Reverse same design


Pillarbox red background with ochre, black and off white emblems and small black circles with beige outline. Reverse same red design. These waistcoats have been designed so that they can be worn on the reverse side.

100% cotton. Machine washable.

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.
