Bostani Kantha

‘Kantha' embroidery was traditionally made of worn out pieces of cloth. Kantha is made up of several layers of cotton cloth, stitched together by designs in simple running stitch, and designs are added using pattern-darning stitch, satin-stitch and button-hole stitch. Kanthas are used for a multitude of household functions. Biswa Bangla has reinterpreted this exquisite craft in a contemporary way.
