Village Kantha Shirt in Black

The carefully stitched and lovingly crafted Kantha shirt is made by our Artisan Ajija Sultana. Ajija and her team of women artisans embroider this vibrant story on a locally sourced fabric called Tussar Silk. The design is inspired by everyday scenes at the village markets of Bengal. 

The motifs tell a vibrant story of Bengals neighborhoods, the village markets, the day-to-day whereabouts of a typical day in their village, of local sellers and street vendors, all through the lens of the women telling attitudes through their age-old embroidery technique. 

The artwork/motifs are first hand-drawn by the local hand-drawing experts or the artisan herself, and then traced onto the fabric, and then hand embroidered using colorful mercerized cotton threads in a classic running stitch pattern on locally sourced Tussar silk/ cotton, and Bengal Silk. 

This unique and exclusive work of art is a heavy labor and time-consuming process that requires 3.5 months of time to embroider by our Kantha artists. Kindly allow this time for them to send this to you with love.
