Handmade kantha quilts in Chatelaine Magazine

We are so thrilled OM home's kantha quilts are featured in the January issue of Chatelaine! 

One of a kind, each blanket is unique. OM home has partnered with the Baljit and Bahené collective in Tilijala, Kolkata to recreate the traditional kantha quilt. 
Our quilts are made with layers of new sari fabric that softens and becomes more rippled and comfortable after each wash.  

If you look closely, you’ll see the collective’s initials are embroidered on each quilt.

OM home's partnership with Baljit and Bahené was formed in collaboration with longtime family friend, Shamita Das Dasgupta, a prominent leader combating violence against women of South Asian descent. Dasgupta works with the collective, provides necessary supplies, and pays them directly for their work.

Baljit and her collective are currently in production. If you are interested in twin, full/queen, or king size quilts please email us at orders[at]omhome[dot]com, and we will advise when larger sizes are available.

Kantha baby quilts are currently available at
