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. Read more about the creation process.

ARTISAN STORY:

This scarf is a stunner. One panel showcases a printed silk print with orange flowers. The other panel showcases subtle block prints on a neutral panel. The scarf is a homage to the California foliage! 

This scarf has been made by talented Gudiya, her mother, and the women in the family. Gudiya has been trained by The Sewing Project as a seamstress and these scarves provide the much needed livelihood for Gudiya's family.
