Kantha is a traditional quilting technique originating in India. It is mainly used to embellish and strengthen fabrics, especially sarees and blankets. Artisans use simple embroidery stitches to create beautiful patterns and narrative designs on fabric.
The original use of this technique was to create warm blankets. Over time, Kantha became a form of textile art, and its use spread to other products such as scarves, pillows, blankets and tablecloths. This Kantha technique dates back centuries. It is deeply rooted in the culture and history of the Bengal region. The fabrics used in Kantha are usually recycled fabrics, like used sarees, which are then put together in layers and embroidered with colored threads. Designs can vary, ranging from floral and geometric designs to mythological and folkloric tales.
Today Kantha quilted fabrics are valued for their handcrafted beauty and uniqueness. Each piece is handmade and bears the marks of the meticulous work of artisans. Kantha products are now very popular all over the world, where they are appreciated for their originality and quality.
