If You are a Fan of the Heads - Kantha Work of Bengal, iTokri is the Right Place for You to Check Those Out!
Kantha, also referred to as Kanta, qanta, is a type of embroidery work prevalent in the eastern regions of the Indian subcontinent, in West Bengal, Odisha, and Tripura. Kantha’s work is also practiced in Bangladesh. Kantha sarees are worn widely by the women in Bengal. In Odisha, old sarees are stacked and stitched together by hand to make a thin cushion. However, this is not used as an usual cushion and is usually placed above a bed cushion. Nowadays, you would find “kantha stitch” or embroidery on garments other than sarees such as churidars, kurta, Punjabis, etc. The art of Kantha stitch practised by the rural women of eastern India is exceptionally intricate and their talent is unparalleled. iTokri thus brings to you a piece of Indian culture and heritage in the form of Kantha work on scarves and stoles that you would simply fall in love with!
