As a wedding present, Nic’s cousin Rachel bought us a gift certificate for a kantha throw
. It took us a long time to decide on which beautiful blanket we wanted, but we finally ordered one.
Here is some information about the company:
We sell premium quality, ethically made, fair trade kantha quilts
. Call them whatever you want – kantha blankets, sari throws, “Indian blankets”, vintage sari kantha – all you need to know is:
- They are hand-stitched in Bangladesh from six layers of reclaimed sari cloth.
- The women who make them were previously living on the street, or working in sex work (often these go hand in hand), or in a vulnerable situation at risk of such.

Our cousin Rachel got us a gift certificate
which covered the price of a throw and shipping. I kept on looking up different designs (they’re all so special!) and we finally settled on the beautiful blue one.
I would definitely suggest checking out their site for lots of great gift ideas, like the one I screenshotted below.
Their Whiteout Ethical Gift Box includes a white kantha throw, a coffee mug, and ethically roasted fair trade coffee. They’re also selling adorable stockings for Christmas, as well as jewellery, and table runners.
