Along the front and back yokes are decorated with patchwork made in kantha and is delicately trimmed with a feminine cotton ruffle is placed in broderie anglaise. Vilma Mix Kantha Jacket is lined inside the body with soft teddy fabric and the sleeves are lined with reused crepe silk.  

This unique item has parts that are upcycled from a vintage Kantha blanket. A kantha blanket is made of old cotton fabrics such as saris that are placed on top of each other and stitched together by hand, using the traditional kantha embroidery technique. This technique is characterized by the many rows of short, continuous stitches – a method that has been used in India for hundreds of years and especially common among women in the countryside. The kantha embroidery technique, creatively upcycles old cotton saris, that previously have been worn by Indian women, giving them new life as upcycled clothing items, blankets, or bedspreads. Each Kantha item is one-of-a-kind in both print and color combination.
