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.
