Sherwood throw

My reversible vintage throws are made from recycled cotton saris. A Krishna devotee from Bengal collects them for me all year round. There are five saris in each throw.After meticulously sorting through piles and piles of saris, I select the designs for the front and reverse. The five layers are hand-stitched together by local village women to create a deliciously soft throw. Each one is unique. Some may have small imperfections and /or patches. This only adds to their charm. Approx 220 x 150cm.

White leaf design on  moss green one side ( photos 1 -2 ) with elegant leaf and stripe border  ( photo 3 ). On reverse - a khaki/white block print  (photos 4 -5 ) with grey stripes on the border ( photo 6). Machine washable.
