For centuries, Bengali women have stitched their time-softened saris with straight, even stitches into items of beauty. This traditional technique is known as kantha stitching. Our beautiful throws are handmade by the talented women of Basha Bangladesh and apply a new twist to traditional techniques. The large chunky knit throws takes around twelve hours for an artisan to complete and are individually peg-loomed from recycled saris.
These chunky knit throws are not only beautiful and unique but also provide a sustainable livelihood for women at risk and survivors of trafficking in Bangladesh.

The makers name is embroidered on every creation so you can view the artisans profile and send a message directly to them.
