About Kantha Embroidery:
Kantha is a type of free-style embroidery practiced by rural women in the eastern regions of India, specifically in the states of West Bengal, Tripura, and Odisha.

It was traditionally made from layers of old silk or cotton textile, which were sewn together to form a quilt, using a running stitch(Kantha stitch) with a relatively coarse thread. The layered quilts were then decorated with embroidery. In some cases, the entire cloth was covered with running stitches, employing beautiful motifs of flowers, animals, birds, geometrical shapes and themes from everyday activities.

With encouragement from co-operative societies and the government, Kantha embroidery is now in fashion and being used on textiles, saris, home furnishings and dress material.
