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. 

This stunning scarf has colorful pink flowers, with green and blue panels.

ARTISAN STORY:

The scarf showcases a modern print on one side in blue, pink and orange colors. The other panel has subtle intermixed colors of orange and pink. Kantha is a beautiful technique of hand embroidery using hand stitching. The art originates from West Bengal, and is used to create comforting creations.
