Hand-embroidered Kantha Silk Sarees

Kantha Sarees Banner-min

Kantha Sarees are highly sought after and often collected over time by Indian women who prize delicate hand-embroidered sarees, as much as they do their jewellery!  This embroidery is distinct in that it using running stitches to, as if, draw out pictorial representations of Nature. The Lotus flower, running vines, chirping birds and delicate floral patterns are brought to life using a fine needle and cotton thread. The embroidered is done on Cotton and Silk, with the colors ranging from neutral earthy tones to more vibrant, bright blues, oranges and browns.

The collection below comes from award-winning Kantha embroidery artisans in Shanti Niketan, West Bengal.
