Blue Kantha throw blanket by Kantha Home

What is Kantha? 

    Kantha is a type of embroidery typical of eastern South Asia, especially in the Indian states of West Bengal and Odisha, and in Bangladesh.

    Where are Kantha Home's throws and throw blankets from? 

      Our blankets are from Basha Boutique in Bangladesh. Our blankets are hand stitched using 6 layers of recycled sari fabric. 

      How much will I pay for shipping?

      For all Kantha Home orders under $60, shipping will be $8. For all orders over $60 shipping will be $13. All orders will arrive at your home safely in a sturdy box, not a thin envelope. While choosing to ship in boxes over thin envelopes does increase our shipping costs, we feel a box better protects your blanket during shipping.

      I really liked this throw, but it's sold out, when will you have this throw back in stock? 

        Kantha Home blankets are one of a kind! No two blankets will be exactly the same! If you come across a blanket you absolutely love, it might not be there when you come back. If you have a specific color or color combination you are looking for email us at katie@kantha-home.com  

        How do I clean my Kantha? 

          Kantha Home blankets are strong, and hold up well to repeated washing. Throws, throw blankets, and Children's throws are all machine washable on a gentle cycle and then hung dry and then put in the dryer to fluff up. Chunky knits and silk blends should be dry cleaned to keep their shape. 

          Who made my Kantha throw or throw blanket? 

            Each throw or throw blanket from Basha, has the name of the woman embroidered on the corner of your blanket. You can read her story at Artisan Stories on the Basha website. After reading about the woman who made your throw or throw blanket, you can write her a message to let her know how much you adore your throw or throw blanket!! 

            Can I return my Kantha? 

            We accept returns or exchanges within 7 days of receipt. The product must be in the same condition it was received in- including tag. You are responsible for shipping the product. In the event of an exchange, you are responsible for shipping for the unwanted product back to Kantha Home and the new product. Any questions can be emailed to us at: katie@kantha-home.com

            The color of the blanket is not exactly like the one in the picture online. 

            At Kantha Home we do our best to photograph the blanket that best represents the colors of the blanket. However, due to varying computer screens or other factors, there may be variances to the true color. We do not recommend trying to match a particular color to a blanket based on the color from your screen. You are more than welcome to send us a color sample to see if the colors match.
