Katha Kantha ki

Kantha is a form of embroidery that is typical of the Indian states of West Bengal and Odisha. The beauty of Kantha work lies in its simplicity, for it does not use any complicated stitches. Instead, simple stitches like the humble running stitch are used to create elaborate, intricate patterns that cover entire quilts, shawls and sarees. The word Kantha is believed to be derived from the Sanskrit word “kontha”, which means rags, and this points to another characteristic of this beautiful form of embroidery – it reclaims old clothes to give them a new life. Eclectic fabrics, old textiles and different hues are all united and made prettier within the framework of Kantha.

Kantha work was traditionally done on cottons and silks to give them a vibrant makeover. The beautiful sarees, shawls, quilts, dhotis and blankets that the painstaking art of Kantha has produced are truly masterpieces. Today, it is also practiced on other fabrics like chiffon and georgette to create other, equally gorgeous, items like kurtas, pants, jackets and more.

The gems of Kantha embroidery

Kantha is an art form with a rich history, traditionally passed down from mother to daughter. In fact, many believe that its origins can be traced to the pre Vedic period. The motifs used in Kantha embroidery then reflect these ancient themes. The sun, the sea, flowers, trees and the cosmos figure widely in Kantha embroidery. Complementing them are geometric shapes like the “borfi” or the diamond shape and straight lines and waves. Human figures, deities and the symbol of the wheel also prominent in Kantha work.

Simple embroidery stitches like the running stitch, the darning stitch and the stem stitch then come together to fill in these motifs and give Kantha fabrics a stunning look.
