From vintage sarees to one-of-a-kind masterpiece—layers of history. Time-honored traditions. Artisanal expression. All gathered together in one place, your home.
Vintage cotton sarees are layered together then handsewn and embroidered by artisans in West Bengal, providing a livelihood for women in the slums of Calcutta. Thousands of individual stitches become one masterpiece, perfect in its imperfections. Derived from the Sanskrit word for “rags”, kantha comes from the times of Gautama Buddha, who used to cover himself with garments made from patched together rags.
These stunning pieces have been transformed into one-of-a-kind pillows. Filled with 95/5 feather and down with a 200-thread count twill cover, the pillow inserts are made in the US. Covers are removable and washable.
