I had a jacket made from a Kantha quilt selected from a huge stock in India.

This cloth, which goes by various names such as Kantha quilt, Rally quilt, and Guduri, is full of Indian handicrafts.

Weaving of fabric, block printing using woodblock printing, layered dyeing, embroidery, careful sashiko...

Traditional crafts are made in various parts of India, but the ones I selected were mainly made in West Bengal, the western part of India.

As it is adjacent to Bangladesh, it is an area where many different cultures come and go.

They were produced by people in villages near the border, far from towns, for use in their daily lives.

Cloth has been used with great care for decades by being reinforced and spliced. It is a fabric so essential to daily life that it is used as one of the trousseau items when getting married.

From Kantha quilts collected from all over the world, we have selected ones with particularly detailed sashiko called Kantha embroidery.

The embroidery is so dense that you can't see it unless you look closely.

on a large cloth

The sashiko was created by spending a huge amount of time on each stitch, making the cloth stronger and showing that it had been used with great care.

Although the exact age is unknown, the Kantha quilt is old enough to be called vintage.

Although there are some damages and rips, each piece has a charm that makes you feel loved.

As no two items are the same, the condition and weight of the fabric will vary.

This item is in relatively good condition with no noticeable damage. The embroidery and dyeing are especially detailed and elaborate designs.

Weight is approximately 860g. It is average thickness among Kantha quilts. Because the fabric is layered, it is not flimsy and thin.

I felt it was lighter than it looked heavy. Please see the bottom of the page for sizes.

It is a reversible jacket with different front and back sides because it is made of several pieces of fabric pasted together.

In the wearing video, both sides are worn. He is 169cm tall.

Kanta jacket is

A big silhouette that doesn't contour to your overall body line.

The size is suitable for men as well.

Drop shoulder design.

The sides and armholes are wide, so you can wear it over a loose knit.

Since it is an all-over patterned jacket, we recommend pairing it with simple sweats, knits, T-shirts, etc.

It's also cute to wear over a denim jacket.

There are two pockets on each side,

Since it is reversible, there is no brand tag attached.

Accented by the long string on the front,

The collar looks nice whether you put it up or fold it.

By making the hem a large round line and making the back slightly longer,

We paid particular attention to creating a beautiful silhouette when viewed from the side.

There is a stain on the right front and back.

The material is cotton. Pair it with a knit in the winter, a T-shirt in the spring, or as a cover-up in the early fall. This Kanta jacket can be used for many seasons depending on the top you match it with.

There are signs of use, tears, stains, fraying, etc. that are typical of vintage, but the texture, including damage, is also unique to Kantha quilts.
Vintage has a charm that is different from mass-produced products or fashion that follows trends.

I would be happy if you would understand it as a taste and wear it for a long time.

Here we introduce the characteristics of the Kanta jacket, examples of damage, and how to care for it.
