Red Kantha by Whistler Studios
Priced and sold per half yard. This unique Kantha fabric is two-ply 100% cotton, 40-42 inches wide and featuring hand-embroidered running stitches throughout with finished edges. A variety of red color-themed fabrics are sewn together in patchwork (and backed with a solid color cotton), then embellished with the multicolor running stitches: each piece is unique! Originating in South Asia, Kantha is a centuries-old form of embroidered quilt making, traditionally handmade by women who passed the textiles down from generation to generation. Embroiderers of this two-layer fabric do not use hoops or frames, which gives the finished fabric a lovely texture like an antique quilt. Photograph is for illustration only; your Kantha cut may differ due to the hand-crafted nature of this beautiful fabric.
