A gorgeous vintage Kantha scarf, the perfect trans-seasonal accessory.
Made from 100% Pure Cotton, featuring Kantha hand stitching, a traditional embroidery technique native to Bangladesh.
For as many as 500 centuries, impoverished Bengali women have taken their discarded cloth scraps and sewn them together with a simple running stitch; taking the old and reimposing it into something useful and possessive. Far from trend-setting, or even artfulness, kantha was constructed originally for the most basic and practical aspiration: to keep warm.
Now? They create a “wow” factor, given the beauty and intricacy of each piece.
