Reversible Silk Patchwork Kantha Dupatta


Reversible Silk Patchwork Kantha Dupatta. Each side is completely unique and different to its reverse side, thus serving as two dupattas in one. Kantha is a form of embroidery often practised by rural women in West Bengal / Bangladesh. The traditional form of Kantha embroidery was done with soft dhotis and saris, with a simple running stitch along the edges. Depending on the use of the finished product they were known as Lepkantha or Sujni Kantha. In some cases, the entire cloth is covered with running stitches, employing beautiful motifs of flowers, animals, birds and geometrical shapes, as well as themes from everyday activities. The stitching on the cloth gives it a slight wrinkled, wavy effect.
