Bihari Patchwork Quilt


This is a special and old "kantha" quilt. Probably from Bihar. It is multiply patched using pretty vintage florals. A bit heavier in weight than the Bengali kanthas and a bit smaller, but soft all the same. Carefully hand stitched with added embroidered highlights. A very genuine piece, full of character and history. As it is a vintage piece (circa1950) there is be some evidence of wear which we think enhances its originality.
