Product Description

Kantha is a traditional craft in which upcycled sari fabrics are stacked in layers and hand stitched giving these table runners a unique look. Bright and colorful, these fabulous runners are completely reversible, giving you two options for your table decor!

Families of the Bahari ethnic group in north Bangladesh had to flee their home twice, during the partition of India and Pakistan in 1947 and again after the independence of Bangladesh in 1971. Their chances for healthy homes, education and income had become very low. Hajiganj Handicrafts Crochet Unit was set up in 2005 to help and now employs up to 87 producers.
