Modern Kantha is our collection of cushions and quilts and features a distinctive ‘running stitch’ – known as kantha – that holds the layers of fabric together. First used in rural West Bengal by women who would recycle old saris and men’s dhotis (vests) into warm blankets, the technique not only provided a solution to the problem of textile waste but was also decorative and colourful. This quilted rectangular cushion features a cross-shaped stitch and comes in powder blue or teal fabric with navy blue and pink or light green stitches respectively. It was designed for us by Copenhagen-based design studio PosePose (formerly WitekGolik) and manufactured by Tiipoi in Bangalore. Made out of 100% cotton sateen fade-proof fabric the cushion cover can be machine-washed. Comes with a duck feather pad for the filling.

We are a product design studio based between Bangalore and London.
India fascinates and inspires us. We think that there is more to Indian design than just sticking an elephant on it, and that Indian craft has more to offer than simply repeating the past.
India can seem a pretty chaotic place. But sitting there, quietly are some really incredible, super functional designs. The “designers” of these objects if they can be found at all, aren’t celebrated in the same way as they are in other countries. Instead design is seen as a bi-product of living. This unassuming approach, with an emphasis on a quiet functionality, is what inspires and drives our creative process.
At Tiipoi, we tell positive and insightful stories of a real India, that is changing and shifting all the time. We don’t want to tell nostalgic stories of its past. We prefer to look at what is happening right now, and highlight India’s role in contemporary design.
