Artisan Story Commonly, kantha products have a patchwork-style aesthetic quality. The word kantha however, refers to the style of the stitching applied to the fabric rather than the fabric itself. Artisans in parts of east South Asia and West Bengal, India have long practiced this traditional hand-stitching technique. Customarily, kantha textiles are created from the recycled remnants of worn garments such as saris. Artisans layer the vintage cotton fabrics and hand-embroider them with a running stitch. Stitching can be in simple rows or form intricate patterns across the textile. In the past, they were often embroidered with motifs depicting tales of local folklore and legends, and were used in celebrations such as births and weddings. The end result is an elaborate patchwork of repurposed fabrics with a plush yet durable texture and a rich history.
