KANTHA means simple stitching in Hindi. For more than 400 years, KANTHA quilts have been made in Bengal, India using many layers of old saris. Each is unique.
Use a delicate care detergent in cold water without soaking, as this might release some dye. Press and wash without rubbing. Rinse the Kantha garment without wringing.
Use a delicate care detergent in cold water, placing the Kantha garment in a mesh bag and washing it with a low-spin or delicate cycle. This will prevent snagging or twisting during the machine cycles.
Place the Kantha garment on a large, dry towel and roll it up to absorb excess moisture. Then lay the garment flat on a drying rack or hang it to air dry.
Hand Steamer / Iron
A hand steamer would be ideal, but if you are using an iron, avoid holding it directly against the garment and applying pressure. Keep the iron a few inches away from the garment and use only steam pressure.
