Hard to decide? Ask your friends :)

Kantha is a type of embroidery popular in West Bengal, India.   Village women with no other means of supporting themselves sew together layers of old saris with intricate stitches.  The embroidery thread is pulled out of the saris themselves.  

Their meticulous artistry transforms worn out rags into extraordinary beautiful creations that can have a second life that is the ultimate in recycling.   This combination of thrift and aesthetics is not mass-produced and is seldom seen for sale.  

  • Each Kantha is unique and you will never find two the same.
  • A Kantha is approximately 31 inches wide and 86 inches long, but sizes can vary slightly.
  • A kantha can be gently machine washed and machine dried.
