Product Description

Although the terms recycling and reuse feel very 21st century, those ideas are certainly nothing new. For centuries, Bengali women have taken their discarded cloth and sewn them together with a simple running stitch to create something new. Kantha in Sanskrit means ‘Rags’!! What an innovative and beautiful art. I’m sure the women who started this tradition would never have imagined the appeal it generates today.

The functional kantha dorokha (two-sided quilt) was not a work of art, but simply what the poorest families used to keep warm. Kantha also had an aspect of intimacy. Old cloth in Bangladesh is said to keep the user safe from harm. Women stitched kantha for their loved ones–for their children, their husbands, their parents. Did you know that the earliest known mention of the Bengali kantha is five hundred years old? In Krishnadas Kaviraj’s Sri Sri Chaitanya Charitamrita, he refers to a kantha sent to him by his mother.

The value of product with kantha embroidery depends on intricacy and details in embroidery. Finer it is, it takes more time and hence more expensive.
