'Home' -- is such a central theme for many artists. Perhaps because 'home' is so intimately related to identity - another core issue.

Last week I received my Kantha or Sari Blanket made by Asha, a woman at Sari Bari (see above). This throw is great in so many ways: the colors & Kantha stitch detail is beautiful, it's recycled and the proceeds go to Sari Bari, which in turn helps give women like Asha a new start. Right now Sari Bari is sold out of additional blankets but you can still find a couple via www.freesetbags.co.uk. Or put yourself on the Sari Bari mailing list.
