Kantha refers to a hand-embroidery style, once popular, but becoming rare, in Bangladesh & West Bengal. It entails simple, decorative, running (straight) stitches that follow a design, which often depicts a rural scene.
Garments are largely handcrafted in these areas. This piece, made from a stunning, tribal-patterned, cotton sari from the 1960s, has a few barely distinguishable marks on it.
