Kantha

Kanthas are quilts made from old saris and in Bengal, from the rich landlord’s wife to the poor tenant farmer, most women make them. These are gifted to the newborn baby, to the newly wed bride, to the beloved grandfather…

Using the simplest running stitch in several variations, the story of a place and a people is told. Kanthas are far more than mere quilts, and in their intricate labyrinths of stitches, flow the thoughts, feelings and hopes of the women who make them.

This collection of kanthas includes both traditional and contemporary motifs in silk and cotton.
