Kantha






Almost forgot to share – these delicious kanthas are what I bought at fabric-a-brac. I especially love the totally unexpected colour combos. You may have spotted the one I bought for mum in Monday's post.

Also, I won't be going along myself (I made sure I went to Peppergreen before it closed down) but this weekend there is a massive auction in Sydney of all their antique and vintage textiles.

    1. It would be awesome to travel to India for textiles (and sights and all that other stuff too!) Good luck with recreating one, sounds relaxing, time-consuming and challenging. I'd love to try something like that myself one day.

  3. I am on a kanthas mission at the mo... we had some added to our website the other day and I was swooning but I can't afford them right now so am searching India on line instead ;)
