today i'm sharing something we lOvE to have in our home.
i have a tendancy... if i see one... i fEEL like i have to have it.
ha!

you can find them on our beds... curl up chairs... sofas...
and in a big basket under the sofa table.
the girls use them to make big tents.
they're just the right amount of snuggle for a cat nap.
the doggies even think they're mighty comfy.
an impromtu spa day.
you name it.
they're fun to have around.

i get lots of questions about them too.
thanks!
i think it's their fun color... they love getting attention.  :)

they're cotton kantha throws.
made from old/vintage/discarded sari dresses.

they have been becoming more & more popular it seems...
easier to find.
the thing is...
IF you see one you like... in a store or online... you REALLY love it...
it's usually a situation you've got to grab i then...
it will be gone really soon.

i have actually gotten lucky and found two at tuesday morning!
yep... there!

some places to check... maybe get on their mailing lists... for this & other fun...
etsy...
fab
...
one king's lane...
joss & main.
and there are oodles of other sources & shops online.
all you have to do is search "kantha".

i prefer the ones that have minimal stitching... just a personal preference...
they are lighter... and we live in texas.
having said that...
i haven't met one i didn't like.  :)

each one is unique & special.
have their own look.
maybe that's what i love about them.
sometimes they'll even have patches where they were worn & loved.
not a mole... a beauty mark....... for sure.

and if someone should happen to climb all over one... all muddy...
i've had no problem washing on cold & tumbling on low/cool a bit.
i can't guarantee this... but i've had no problems what so ever.
i like to wash things when they enter the home anyway.

and if you're like me... think kantha throws are fun...
they're making bags... pillows... scarves..... yadda.
oh!
yes!
lots of good & pretty repurposing going on.
i'm a fan!
