Cosy Autumns and Kantha Throws

Homewares

So it’s farewell to the Summer and time to cosy on down and embrace the Autumn! And as textiles are such a quick and easy way to add comfort to any room, we’re delighted with our latest collection of little vintage kantha quilts (queen size kanthas arriving very soon too..we’ll keep you posted!). Kantha quilts have been created in Bangladesh and West Bengal for over 500 years. They’re made by stitching together layers of vintage saris with a ‘kantha’ running stitch, often in a bold contrasting coloured cotton thread and every kantha is entirely unique, oozing cool style and timeless charm! They’re great for uni rooms as they’re very easy to maintain and are machine washable too. So be bold with your hues and get ready to drape away: you can throw little kanthas over your tables, chairs and sofas and queen size kanthas are fabulous as chic bedspreads. You may not want to colour up your entire home but you can always dip your toes in by adding a few colourful hints here and there. Take a peek…

All little kanthas available now. £40 plus p&p at www.ibbidirect.co.uk

Queen size kantha throws will be available soon
