Kantha quilts are a traditional textile found in abundance in India. They are made from layers of cotton saris, sewn together with a distinctive, allover running stitch. Artisans transform the fabric scraps into beads for jewelry, which provides new life to a textile that is often discarded. Each Kantha bead has a base made of wood, carved out of scraps gathered from a local furniture factory.
