The term Kantha refers to a type of embroidery traditionally found in South East Asia, particularly in the Indian states of West Bengal and Odisha and in Bangladesh. Kantha stitching is an up-cycling technique, using old saris—layering them atop each other and joining them through Kantha stitching—to create quilts, cushions and throws.
In these places, it has been a tradition for generations, and for many women, an heirloom to pass down to children and grandchildren.
There is a saying, ‘When away from home, the Kantha is remembrance of my mother because it is as soft as her arms which have comforted me in the past.’
Reversible Kantha runner. Great for a cosy extra layer on a bed or as a couch throw.
