Kantha Silk

Kantha is the embroidery style from the Bolpur-Santiniketan regions of Bengal, which is widely used to pattern sarees as well as other garments and accessories. The kantha work, characterized by the 'running stitch' is always done by hand, usually by women, and the elaborateness and intricacy of the embroidered patterns indicate how ‘heavy’ or ‘light’ the saree is.

Choose from our exclusive collection of kantha-embroidered sarees in pure silk or tussar silk, each representing weeks or even months of rigorous craftsmanship …
