Kantha is an embroidery form practiced by rural women specially in Bengal region of South East Asia. For centuries these women have been using old and used fabrics and hand stitching (kantha) them to create something new. So, what started as a necessity has become an art form and much needed source of income for these poor rural ladies.
Kantha Gudri quilts are re-purposed from vintage cotton fabrics so they might have small holes, be faded at places or patched.
