What Is Kantha?
Kantha quilts are a traditional textile found in abundance in India. They are made from layers of worn cotton saris, sewn together with a distinctive, allover running stitch. Artisans transform the fabric scraps into beads for jewelry, which provides new life to a textile that is often discarded. Each Kantha bead has a base made of wood, carved out of scraps gathered from a local furniture factory. Healing Hollow, World Finds and the artisans, love sustainable sourcing!
The result is a Kantha design as unique as the artisan that crafted it!

World Finds established the Girls Education Fund to provide additional resources to the most marginalized families in the artisan communities of India. Support includes tuition fees, school uniforms, transportation, books, and so much more.

 

World Finds works directly with all of the artisan groups – which include a combination of WFTO (World Fair Trade Organization) members, small families of artisans, and women’s cooperatives. They are all talented, low-income artisans who are paid a livable wage and have safe working conditions, access to healthcare and childcare, and on-going training and education. Their holistic approach means they have been working with many of these groups for over a decade – during that time they have seen many artisans lift themselves out of poverty and even launch their own successful businesses, strengthening the entire community.

 

 Any profit from the sale of these bracelets (through Healing Hollow Australia) is donated back to these communities.
