This is my Triangles Ruana. I love these because they are easy to wear. Wear straight down, tie it in front, put a broach on it or throw one or both sides over your shoulder... and totally reversible. This is probably best for a woman who is size L and up to 4X...
Kantha Jackets created individually by Kjaer in North Vancouver, Canada and are all one of a kind.
When you buy one of these KOME vintage repurposed garments, know that you are not just supporting a small Canadian business, but, also women who have left the red light district and are making their living creating this handicraft. You might even consider these magnificent pieces as heirlooms for your family.
When I first saw this vintage repurposed fabric it was love at first sight. I am an artist and the beauty of these old saris created from 2 to 5 layers of used fabrics created joy in my heart.
I buy my Kantha fabric from a fair trade company in Bangladesh.They support over 1500 artisans in rural poor areas. These women are now making their living sewing, using a simple running stitch and often with truly delightful patches indicating the age and wear of the fabrics. No two are ever alike
Each garment is made with love by many women… including me… and it is just for you. ENJOY
