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 stunning and bright orange woven sari patterns on one side. The other side features the batik technique popular in West Bengal. A multi-cultural scarf is a perfect accessory to brighten your summer.

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
