A unique set of 4 reversible sari placemats. Pieces of sari cloth are carefully matched and stitched in straight, even rows to brighten your table. It's double-sided so you can choose one colour and pattern one day, and the other side the next.

Bright colours, bold prints, charming patchwork and unique pairings reflect local vibrancy and spirit and ensure no one else has a table setting exactly like yours.

The word 'kantha' means 'patched cloth' and Bangladeshi and Northwest Indian women have made functional shawls like this for centuries. These stunning kantha products are superimposed layers of vintage saris, carefully hand-sewn with neat rows of contrasting thread to form a beautiful finished scarf or throw. Each item is made from 100% reclaimed vintage cotton sari cloth. This scarf/shawl was stitched in approximately 4 hours by hand (depending on experience).

These unique placemats were handcrafted by women who were previously trafficked into or otherwise engaged in formal or floating sex work (or at risk), now employed in work that brings dignity & livelihood. Our kantha blankets are all made in a generous, safe space by vulnerable and at-risk women who can now work with dignity because of purchases like yours. We stand by our products and are confident that you won't find a kantha that is as unique, versatile, rich in story, or as well-constructed as our beautiful hand-stitched kantha products.

Just like each kantha item is unique, so is the woman who made it. Here are the stories of the brave and talented women who work at Basha to produce our beautiful kantha products. Find the name of your blanket's artisan stitched onto the label, and you can read her story (and even send her a message) at https://bashaboutique.com/artisan-stories/
