I was thrilled to see Hand & Cloth featured in this week’s Time Out Chicago. Started by adorable Chicagoan Sarah Aulie (who went to school with my brother), H & C provides a group of women in Bangladesh with job, leadership, and entrepreneurial skills. These employees hand stitch beautiful kantha, a traditional blanket made from repurposed vintage sari cloth. Then Sarah and her team bring them back to the states to sell online, in a few shops, and at events like Dose Market. My mom and I bought a couple kantha from Sarah a few years ago. I adore mine. It looks fab on the sofa or bed and would also be a cool window panel. And Lemur loves napping on his, um, I mean mine.
