Melding the magic of exotic Eastern textiles with a high-end design sensibility, Mela & Roam creates linens and furnishings that transport you to far-flung places. Kantha is an ancient Indian embroidery technique that uses a running stitch to bind several layers of cloth—the belief is that the artisan is sewing wishes into the fabric with every stitch. Made in Bengal from an assortment of vintage cotton saris, this quilt is an upcycled work of art requiring little care—a testament to its quality and craftsmanship.
Mela, pronounced mey-lah, translates to a gathering or festival. Mela & Roam is named for founder Courtney Barton’s love of roaming the globe to dive into bustling bazaars. As the quilt fabrics are vintage, they may possess worn components, patches, or perfectly aged inconsistencies, all of which add to the unique charm and sensibility of the piece.

Sanskrit for a gathering, mela refers to trade fairs that enable rural Indian villagers to spread culture far and wide through traditional handicraft. While in Southeast Asia, Mela & Roam founder Courtney Barton amassed a wealth of curiosities and exclusive linens that inspired a rich, warm, and vibrant collection of accessories and furnishings.
