The DHARLA quilt is made from hand block-printing a design onto unbleached cotton and then stitching the layers together with Kantha stitching across the entire piece to add strength, shape and texture. The quilt is lightweight yet warm and can be use as a bedspread, throw or summer quilt. Kantha Embroidery is the most popular form of embroidery practiced by rural women in West Bengal, it is a simple running stitch. The traditional form of Kantha embroidery was applied to old saris and dhotis, using thread drawn out from the borders of the used cloth to stitch together layers of old cloth to make a quilt.
