I first went looking for kantha quilts to put in the shop to bring some color and texture to the white walls. I saw them in a few places but then I came across these one-of-a-kind Kantha Quilts made from recycled sari's. Then I saw WHO was stitching them together and I immediately got chills.
These kantha quilts are hand stitched in India by survivors of sex trafficking using recycled sari's sourced from small villages in India. The stories of survival and hope these quilts represent is truly inspiring. Every quilt purchased from this organization really does make a difference in the life of the artisan who made it. It gives her dignified work, a living wage, education and hope for her children.
I feel so compelled to be a channel for these women to thrive and am looking forward to expanding our line of products to support their mission.
Come check out the quilts we have in the store or feel free to call me for pictures of individual quilts. Prices are $160 for a queen size and $180 for a king.
