The word kantha is derived from the Tamil word “kantha,” which means “cover.” Kantha quilts consist of several layers of recycled cotton or saris, They are held together by a simple, running, “Kantha” stitch that is applied row after row and gives the fabric its unique, slightly old, wrinkled effect.
