What is Kantha?

Kantha 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.

    Really beautiful jacket, so well made and looks very expensive and slightly out of the ordinary!
    I think it is a bargain, especially in view of all the work involved.
    Suggest buying a slightly larger size if you like clothing roomy.

    I just received my Nakshi kimono jacket form Indigowares and I am over the moon in love with it. It is stunning and superbly made.
    This is unique (globally informed through kimono style and Indian prints with kantha stitching) and can be dressed up or down such that it is very versatile. It is also good for all seasons, day wear in winter and for the night chill in the summer. I wear a size 6 US and ordered a medium for my swimmer shoulders. I am delighted with everything about this jacket!
