Our beautiful kantha bedspreads are made by very special women at Basha, a fair trade social enterprise in Bangladesh that helps survivors of sex trafficking rebuild their lives. Each quilt takes about six days to make from time-softened sari cotton and neat rows of hand-stitching. The word 'kantha' means 'patched cloth' and skillful repairs simply enhance vintage character of this quilt. Our vintage sari kantha quilts are reversible and no two are ever the same so, if this is the one for you, don’t let it slip away!

“My life has changed so much. I've forgotten all my past and I am proud that I am doing a respectable job. My daughter will have a good education and she won’t have to go through what I have been through” – Jahanara, quilter
Basha is a social enterprise that helps victims of sex trafficking in Bangladesh leave the streets and build a new life making kantha quilts from recycled saris. Training and counselling are provided and children attend the on-site nursery school while their mothers work. As beautiful products emerge from discarded cloth, broken lives are made whole, stitch by stitch.
