jeanette farrier

Jeanette Farrier's interest in Kantha began while visiting India in 2003. She was entranced by the traditional village craft of stitching using saris to create ritual offerings of happiness, prosperity, and wish fulfillment. Jeanette was also determined to improve the lives of women she saw living in poverty in Kolkata by providing them with a means to generate income. These Kantha blankets and scarves are made from layers of vintage saris joined by a simple running stitch.

Handmade in Kolkata, India.
