The Story

The roots of Kantha (pronounced KAHN-taa) can be traced to Bangladesh and the Bengal region, and so Kantha can be defined as a Bengali art form.

This ancient embroidery technique has rich cultural roots that have been passed down for generations, from mother to daughter, for over five hundred years.

The origin of the word Kantha comes from “kontha” which means “rags” in Sanskrit. Over five hundred years ago, Bengali women would take discarded saris and sew them together with a running stitch to create quilts. The original purpose of these quilts was for a simple necessity – to keep warm during the cold winters.

By piling and stitching layers of old saris together, Kantha is an art that has been sustainable since the beginning
