Prussian 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.

Cornflower blue paisley motif - white on blue ( photos 1, 2) with small ice grey and blue border ( photo 3 ). On the reverse , a lighter cornflour blue on white  ( photos 4 - 5) and a small pink border ( photo 6 ).Machine washable.
