Kantha is perhaps the oldest from of Indian embroidery as it can be traced back to the 1st Century K.D. The thought behind this needlework was to reuse old clothes such as saris and dhotis and turn them into something new with a simple running stitch. “Kantha saris” are traditionally worn by women in Bengal. Today Kantha embroidery is popular amongst the designer fraternity.
