Kantha Bae has partnered with Basha Boutique to bring you fabrics hand-embroidered, supporting fair-trade. Basha means "house of hope," and there, Bangladeshi women coming from at risk and trafficking environments find a home, a job, and safe care for their children. Kantha Bae also designs head wraps, ring slings, and swaddles for infants and toddlers.
Kantha is a type of embroidery, especially popular in India. Women in Bengal typically use old saris and cloth and layer them with kantha stitch to make a light blanket, throw or bedspread, especially for children. We source our Kantha directly from India and Bangladesh and then use our own designs to create products with the fabric.
Each piece is one-of-a-kind when it comes to the patterns and prints you'll find in our shop, however the Kantha we use is 100% woven cotton. This means the type of fabric is the same for each design. We are compliant with all current CPSIA standards and regulations as your baby's safety and comfort are our primary concerns. We love the softness and bohemian flare that Kantha brings to every design that we put out and we think you will, too!
