Our Upcyled Silk Sari Kantha Scarves
Our silk sari kantha scarves are rich in tradition and values.
Two pieces of silk fabric from vintage saris are stitched together and hand embroidered by home-based women artisans in the villages of West Bengal, India. They work on the embroidery between household chores like cooking or looking after their children. This very fine hand stitching embellishes the design giving it a stunning ripple effect.
Each is one of a kind so you are the only person in the world wearing one! And they are reversible.
What is Kantha?
Kantha refers both: the embroidered "quilt" or finished product and to the stitch itself - typically a small, straight running stitch. Traditionally, women in rural Bengal came together to create layered, embroidered quilts from old saris.
Our upcycled silk sari scarves are an innovative take on this tradition.
