Kantha Purse - Bengal Coral
A one-of-a-kind zip purse handmade from vintage Indian kantha work, and lined with a new hand printed block print fabric. Each purse is slightly different, dependent on where it has been cut from each kantha.
Big enough to function on its own as a clutch, small enough to fit inside your handbag. Perfect for cosmetics, toiletries and everyday essentials. Will of course fit your phone and wallet, sunglasses and lipstick.
Handmade in India especially for Small Acorns from kanthas personally selected by Amanda. Made of cotton. Gentle machine washable.
Approximate size - 300mm wide x 210mm tall.
The word 'kantha' refers to a type of running stitch embroidery, which was traditionally used to stitch several layers of cotton together to make a quilt or bedcover or cushion. Often the layers were repurposed saris. Vintage kanthas are beautifully soft and often have small imperfections or patches where they have been mended. Each one is unique and this only adds to their charm.
