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.

  1. Sarah Jago

    A wedding anniversary present (in April) from my husband, who has a great eye for beautiful textiles and distinctive clothes. I love it – it’s so flattering and unusual – not on the high street! I have worn it every day, perfect for layering, especially with the changeable weather, and the colours and style go with everything.

    I went for the shorter style jacket and absolutely love it. Beautifully made, gorgeous colours and fabric. I feel great wearing it and already it seems like an indespensible item in my wardrobe! Thank you x
