Kantha is a type of embroidery typically found in West bengal and Odisha. This is essentially done on old and used fabrics to renew their lifespan, making them even better than new. It involves a running stitch on clothes, leading to different patterns, including flowers, birds, geometrical shapes or any scenarios from everyday life. This embroidery gives the cloth a wavy and wrinkled look. Kantha stitching is also used to make simple quilts, which are known as Nakshi Kantha. There are seven different types of Kantha works, with the most popular and common being Lep kantha and Sujani Kantha. Lep kantha involves rectangular warps heavily padded to produce quilts and blankets. Sujani kantha involves rectangular pieces of cloth used for ceremonial occasions.
