Our Kantha scarves are handmade lovingly by our women artisans of The Sewing Project, a non-profit women's society providing livelihoods trainings to women in semi-rural Unnao, Uttar Pradesh, India. Each scarf takes at least 15 days to create. The scarves are one of a kind - panels of saris are embroidered together creating a one of a kind scarf in the entire world! No two scarves are alike, a unique fashion statement.

ARTISAN STORY: 

An absolute stunner - this unique scarf showcases the temple block prints on one side, and yellow tie and dye on the other panel. The brocade edges add the perfect sophistication to the scarf. The block printed panel was designed by our friends at Chaani.in.

This scarf has been made by talented Neeta. Neeta is soft-spoken and resilient homemaker, mother and a budding entrepreneur. Neeta is being trained at The Sewing Project as a seamstress. Neeta makes her living through sewing, stitching and embroidery
