hand and cloth.

When I first laid eyes on these gorgeous throws from Hand & Cloth, I couldn’t tell if they were wearable or home textiles or merely art – and that versatility is just the start of the beauty of these pieces.

Hand & Cloth seeks to provide trafficked or at-risk women in Bangladesh dignified work crafting kantha blankets. Traditionally a poor woman’s craft, each of these blankets is created by sewing six layers of vintage saris together in an intricate pattern. These blankets have been a quiet form of self-expression for centuries and it is Hand & Cloth’s desire to cultivate pride in the tradition. These women also receive literacy training and childcare during the day and with each unique piece featuring a collection of bright colors and patterns, make sure you visit Hand & Cloth’s site to see the full range of these gorgeous textiles and learn more about the Hand & Cloth mission.
