The best tote bag you will ever own!
Up-cycled from Sari cloth, into Vintage Kantha Quilts and throw blankets some 20 years ago, our Jhola Market Bags are the definition of Slow fashion.
Firstly, this hand block printed cotton cloth was designed to be an Indian Sari. After years of use, and as fashions change, the Sari has then been sewn with 4 to 5 layers of cotton into a vintage Kantha quilt. This repetitive hand stitching, like Japanese Boro Stitch, is referred to as Kantha Stitch.
Our Indian neighbours are masters at reusing things, so after the vintage quilt has had its use, the cloth once again has been used to create our stunning Jhola Market bags and more. They are wonderfully textural and strong. In fact, I once went to the supermarket with just this bag and while it fit everything I bought I could not lift it, so had to buy another recyclable bag!
I have used mine as an overnight bag, as well as a general use handbag. So many people comment on it as they even look comfortable to carry.
This is the perfect gift for yourself and others. They are larger than a standard shopping bag. At 60 x 48 x 20 - 25 cms they are very roomy. As they are all made from recycled cloth no two are ever the same, so don't try to order 2 of the 1 design. Some have sister bags that are similar but never 100% the same design.
AT Yummy Linen you will find an assortment of new and vintage pieces. The Queen / King size Kantha quilts are all new cotton cloth. OUR Vintage Kantha throws, which are smaller are all upcycled from retro designs from the 1960s and 1970s.
All our designer bedding range of Luxury Premium Linen have deep pockets and are our designs.
