What is Kantha?

Kantha stitch is a style of stitching found in Indian embroidery, traditionally found in Bangladesh, Bengal, Odisha and Tripura.

Classically created originally by stacking old saris onto each other and hand stitching them together using a simple running stitch to make a thin cushioned layer. Traditionally Bengali women layered together old discarded saris and clothing with the simple kantha style stitching to make a bedspread or bed cushion.

Kantha stitched embroidery is one of the most important textile arts in Eastern india. It can be traced back 500 years as a way the Bengalis recycled old saris, dhotis and household textiles. By using the kantha technique they up-cycled their old textiles into quilts for warmth and comfort. Even the yarn used to make the embroidery was salvaged from the other textiles and clothing.
