This natural kantha blanket is made from new, unbleached cotton. Not from recycled saris as some of our other kantha blankets.

These kantha blankets are made in Bangladesh, by an organisation in the capital Dhaka. They create a safe place where women and girls who have been in forced prostitution can work. They are paid fairly, work under good circumstances and receive training and daycare for their children.
