Purple Stunner Kantha Scarf

$55.00

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 kantha scarf is an absolute stunner. The purple panel has embroidered and traditional designs on one side. The other side showcases the beautiful tie-and-dye patterns. An absolute must-have for anyone with love for pinks and purples.
