Large Vintage Quilted Indian Khanta King Size Blanket

About

Large vintage quilted Indian Khanta king-size Blanket. In shades of red. brown, tan, yellow, red, deep blue and natural. Khanta quilts alongside jamdani are the pride of Bengal (a geopolitical, cultural and historical region in Asia in the Sub-continent of India.) Khantas are highly decorative with figurative motifs scattered across the face of the quilt. The quilter (usually women) changes the colors of the quilting stitches to form images of people and animals. Up to seven layers of old sari or dhoti (a type of muslin) are quilted together to make up cold-weather quilts, eating cloths, and cloths for religious rituals. Each district of Bengal has a particular style of quilts and quilting. Their motifs commonly include images relating to the circus, and figures from Bengali mythology. The patterns on Bengal khantas are worked mostly in black, red and green the predominant colors on the woven borders of Bengali saris. Condensed from: Indian Textiles by J. Gillow and N. Barnard.
