The Potting Shed
The Potting Shed Folkestone sauces vintage Kantha quilts and Suzani’s from artisans in Kerala southern India. Founder David Holden came from a menswear background to open what is fondly known as T.P.S. in 2019. He began sourcing vintage fabrics from India having fallen for their unique charms. Like other traditions Kantha has a rich cultural history. These quilts have been stitched together using old saris and cloth scraps to repurpose them into usable items once more. “Kantha” is the Sanskrit word for rags, and old cloth was believed to provide protection from harm.
