Kantha embroidery - Recycling rags to riches
The beauty of Kantha embroidery lies in using the simple running stitch to create beautiful motifs of flowers, animals, birds and geometrical shapes. Traditionally Kantha work was done by stitching together layers of old fabric like saris together to make a quilt, recycling it into a thing of beauty. Kantha embroidery is a simple technique that can be used to make anything from an old shoe to a scrap of cloth absolutely beautiful. Check out some beautiful Kantha work at Aniika.
