Kantha Robes are perfect for lounging with a book and keeping the chill off while starting or ending your day. You can even toss this jacket on before heading out to a backyard get together or your favorite spot on the porch. Loose around the wrists makes layering a breeze. Pockets on the inside and out are large enough to hold your cell phone, keys, or wallet and, along with a button on each side, makes the robe easily reversible. The approximate measurements are as follows:
Armpit to Cuff: 18"
Armpit to Armpit (across chest): 25"
Armpit to Hem: 28"
Each robe is unique and different as the artist that lovingly made it. No two are alike. They are made from vintage cotton sarees sewn with a light batting in the middle with long running stitches called Kantha. Each stitch is painstakingly hand sewn by a technique taught throughout the generations. There may be little sewn patches or other unique textural stitches as they sew together the previously worn sarees. This gives the Kantha Robe it's charm and story.
Nothing is thrown away in India and they recycle much of their textiles where sarees take on a new life and form. You now have the opportunity to enjoy a piece of India....a work of art.
