What are the care instructions for my item?

The product description for your piece will list all fabrics and materials used in your product. While most of our items are completely machine washable, for longest life we advise that you hand wash, line dry and fluff in the dryer for softness. We realize that isn’t always realistic, so we use only the highest quality materials to compliment our Kantha fabrics so you can wash however your routine permits. Machine washing should use a cold, gentle cycle and tumble dry low.

I noticed some loose threads/color imperfections in my piece, is it damaged?

No way! That’s the beauty of Kantha. The vibrant fabrics are stitched together by hand by women in India using multiple layers of vintage saris. Any markings, stains, patches or loose threads simply tell the story of their past lives and their many transformations before reaching you. You’re now a part of the story. Embrace the beauty of imperfections!

Do you take custom orders?

We do! Because every piece of Kantha fabric is one-of-a-kind, we advise contacting us with your ideal designs and colors by emailing orders@eathsidedesigns.com . We can provide you with 2-3 pattern options within your color preferences. There is a $10 convenience fee for each custom design.

Note: we periodically post new Kantha arrivals to our social media accounts (Instagram: @Earthside.Designs) if you see a pattern you have to have, contact us quickly, we never produce the same pattern twice!

When will my custom order be ready?

Lead times vary on custom orders depending on the season and availability of raw Kantha materials, but we’ll always work with you to ensure quick production and shipping! Typical windows from order-to-shipment are about 2-4 weeks.
