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:

This stunning scarf features the traditional tie-and-die purple panel on one side. The other panel features a pretty batik-printed technique on the softest silk fabric.

This scarf has been made by talented Roshini and the community of seamstresses she works with in Unnao, Uttar Pradesh. 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
