Kantha Stiching technique

Kantha is the traditional embroidery form of West Bengal. Kantha is perhaps the oldest form of Indian embroidery as it can be traced back to the first and second A.D.

A running stitch done on several layers of cloth, kanthas were made by women of all rural classes in Bengal. The rich landlords wife making her own elaborate embroidered quilt in her leisure time and the farmers wife making her own thrifty coverlet, both equal in beauty and skill.

The artisan usually embroidered images of people, animals, flowers, geometric designs and mythological figures. Kantha work only became available commercially in the 1980’s and the women who work with Sasha are part of a small exclusive group of specialists. They are very proud that their work cannot easily be done by anyone else and they have found independence and stature through their hands

Photos do not do them justice.
