About Kantha Embroidery – Kantha runs in every young girl’s blood in rural Bengal. She has instinctive quilting talent and artistry, inherited from her mother or grandmother. Colour palettes are discussed but the artisans are given the freedom to use their ingenuity and individual preferences in creating their own Kantha textiles.The artisans sit within the comfort of their homes, tending to their flock and family, enjoying the luxury of flexitime to work on their Kantha textiles. Often, four or five neighbours sit together in the backyard with palm trees swaying back and forth in the gentle breeze.The artisans are given the freedom to choose their designs and colours that keeps this heritage stitch alive in its original form.
