Kantha Quilt Workshirt

This workshirt is handmade from repurposed, vintage Kantha quilt fabric at our atelier.

Kantha means patched cloth and these jackets are made from remnants of discarded cloth scraps sewn together into quilt form. Though surprisingly thin and light-weight, Kantha quilted blankets have always been intended to provide warmth. Kantha fabric is native to eastern South Asia and has been a popular form of fashioning and repurposing something old into something new for hundreds of centuries.

The workshirt jacket silhouette is inspired from the turn of the 20th century style in America. The style was famously worn and most popularly advertised for the working class, including railroad workers, farmers, and ranchers. The modern style workshirt jacket has endured over 100+ years.
