Vintage Sari Throw
Women in India save fabric from their favorite saris, and stitch them together with colorful thread to create these one-of-a-kind cotton sari throws. Hand-sewn by fair trade artisans in India, the multiple, quilted layers make these kantha throws soft and warm.
Our vibrant sari blankets are also reversible, so when you need a fresh look just flip them over.
*Each sari throw is unique and original, due to the use of reclaimed sari fabric. The throws come in a variety of colors and patterns, let us choose for you. If you would like to request a sari throw in a specific color family, please leave a note in the comments section during checkout and we'll do our best to meet your request.
