Quick Overview

Designed in light lemon yellow, a rare color, with bright pink flowers spread across the whole kurta this kantha dress is extraordinarily beautiful. Especially the embroidery at the neckline to create a thick border of flowers is outstanding. Uniquely designed in a combination of kantha work and shadow work, this dress is the perfect attire for a fine summer day. This comes with a dupatta (used like a stole) strewn with pink flowers and a bottom cloth, all of the same color in cotton. Fit for those occasions when you want to stand out all dignified, without having to even try.

Kantha is a traditional embroidery style of Bengal, India, involving simple, running stitches. Kanthas were made by women of all rural classes in Bengal, the rich landlord's wife making her own elaborate embroidered quilt, and the farmer's wife making her own thrifty, coverlet, equal in beauty and skill. The kantha in its simplest form was invented out of necessity for making quilts out of waste fabric. 'Kantha' means 'embroidered quilt' in Bengali. Bengali women used to reuse old silk and muslin sarees for making quilts in this way. Kantha embroidery is believed to have been in vogue for over 5 centuries.

It is believed that Lord Buddha and his disciples used to patch rags together with kantha to make quilts to cover themselves. Motifs, both simple and elaborate, images of gods and goddesses, flowers, animals as well as geometric patterns are used in kanta work.
