Khushi Kantha Community Interest Company

Profile

Khushi Kantha ('Happy Blanket') creates opportunities with mothers in Bangladesh to draw on their cultural heritage and use their existing artisan skills to provide for their children with dignity, by partnering with them to make sustainable, multi-purpose baby blankets inspired by the Bengali 'kantha' tradition. As practical as they are pretty, our Happy Blankets can be used for pretty much every task on a parents' daily to-do list - and their vibrant colours and striking kantha embroidery make them really stand out. We're breathing new life into 'deadstock' cotton fabric from the Bangladeshi garments industry, by upcycling it as the inside layers of our blankets, while the outside layers are made from traditional handloom fabric, dyed by hand using environmentally-friendly dyes. We want to turn the words 'Made in Bangladesh' into a statement of pride and happiness.
