A classic and elegant Silk Kantha embroidered scarf in vibrant tones of brown. Kantha embroidery is a popular embroidery style of West Bengal which started off as a simple practice of Bengali housewives mending old clothes by pulling out a strand of thread from the colorful border of their saris and creating simple designs with them. Kantha stitching traditionally was used for weaving simple quilts, light blankets, throw or bedspread for children. Traditional Kantha embroidery signifies a simple running stitch along the edges, giving it a slightly wrinkly and wavy effect. In modern times, this exclusive embroidery style is popular across a variety of garments. Motifs used in Kantha embroidery are generally human, animal figures or floral symbols which cover the surface from the corner.
