Kantha quilts are generally made in India using vintage saris and other items of vintage clothing.
They are (amazingly) entirely handstitched – usually 5/6 layers of fine cottons layered together.
I have added a little pocket to every other page, these are to keep your treasures, a piece of lace/fabric, button, earring, little notes, anything that is precious to you. You can make the little book an heirloom full of memories.
There are 5 pages and a cover, so there are 10 sides – on each page I have added a piece of lace, crochet, buttons, and a Kensitas Silk Flower. These Silks were given away with packets of cigarettes in the 1930’s. The colours are so vibrant, really beautiful little embroidered works of art.
Each stitch in this book is done by hand, including the blanket stitching around each page.
Please see my gallery images for each page.
My keepsake books are unique and original.
Postage is included in price for UK – for overseas, please message me.
