Welcome to THE RUNNING STITCHES, a curated collection of handmade textiles from India. 

I’ve spent my life studying and working with fabrics and when my two boys were three and five we started to travel each winter. On a trip to India I discovered Kantha blankets this started a long love affair with these pieces of Indian history. Hunting for each unique piece and offering them to a new home, gives me great pleasure. 

I specialise in genuine vintage Kantha throws, bolsters and cushions all one of a kind. One off floral embroideries, painted then hand stitched to continue an age old tradition. Scarves, shawls and bags are also available, made from repurposed silk sari and cotton Kantha. I also have commissioned garments such as waistcoats, jackets and kimonos with handpicked textiles and designs.

All items are handmade with love and my aim is to not only offer beautiful and unique pieces to treasure, but also that they are the very best both in quality and value.
