Kantha quilts were invented centuries ago by some very resourceful women. Poor women in rural areas of West Bengal needed blankets for their babies, so they took the softest parts of their well-worn cotton saris and pieces them together with an allover running stitch, now known as "kantha". Today World Finds artisans in India re purpose traditional Kantha quilts into one-of-a kind, modern accessories.
