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:

The scarf showcases block printed geometric patterns designed by our friends at Chaani.in, using a two-tone silk fabric. The stunning browns and greens on one side are perfectly paired with block printed panels on the other. The geometric block prints showcase the temple structure from India. This lustrous greens and brown scarf is a perfect accessory for all seasons.  

This scarf has been made by talented Roshini. Her name, which means "brightness" well reflects her personality. Roshini was trained by The Sewing Project and is currently training women in her village to embroider as well. Women in her community make a living through sewing, stitching and embroidery
