*****More information about the provenance/story of this item ********
This kantha quilt was part of the wedding trousseau trunk of a girl from an Indian village decades ago. Typically these quilts due to age, use and at times neglect have holes, stains or frayed edges. However this particular quilt appears to be in never used, mint condition. I have trimmed any extra quilting threads, repaired minor imperfections and it has been dry cleaned to remove any odors.

Wonderful embroidered shawl!!
Beautiful!! Very happy :)
The hand crafted vintage kantha quilt throw I ordered is absolutely beautiful. The combination of colors on the front and reverse side and the detailed hand stitching are amazing. It is even more beautiful than the photo.
The churidar leggings are great and will be perfect with tunics.
Artisans of India is a very honest seller and have great communication. They are so appreciative of positive comments. They work very hard on their beautiful handcrafted items and the colors and designs reflect the beauty of India.
I have purchased from this seller many times and have always gotten great service. I love everything I have gotten from her...tunics, bags, shawls... I get lots of compliments on the bags and am excited to get the latest one. It is just as cute in person as the photo shows.
