Brocade Silk Bangladeshi Kantha Quilt, Late 20th Century

$650

About

Bangladeshi quilts, known as Kantha, consist of two to three pieces of cloth sewn together with decorative embroidery stitches. They are made out of Saris and are mainly used for bedding, although they may be used as a decorative piece such as a tapestry, divider or wall decoration. This Kantha cloth is a richly embroidered silk sari in turquoise and gold, sewn into a thick black cotton canvas, which gives weight and stability to the silk for a light quilt or a wall tapestry.
