Kantha Cloth is made from two layers of cotton fabric, hand stitched together. This kantha cloth has a patched cotton front and a solid cotton back, with simple running stitches running through the length of the fabric using heavy cotton thread in two colours. Originating in South Asia, Kantha is a centuries-old form of embroidered quilt making. Kantha Cloth can be used for a variety of projects: quilts, bags, table toppers, pillow covers, jackets, skirts, and even upholstery. This fabric is labour intensive to make and special to use.
Valori Wells’ Kantha fabric is made in India from two layers of cotton; the face is created by a myriad of Valori’s prints inspired by her travels afar and based on her block print designs while the backing is a coordinating soft cotton solid. These two layers of fabric are patiently hand stitched together, ending up as a glorious kaleidoscope of pattern and embroidery. A kantha stitched creation is a thing to be treasured.
