Kantha stitching began
with creative, industrious women in India and Bangladesh repurposing rag or remnants to create usable fabric. A simple running stitch quilting layers of fabric could transform unusable pieces into fantastic blankets that were believed to provide protection.
The traditional running kantha stitch is still used today. Now, it’s common to see newly printed fabrics, re purposed saris, production misprints, remnants, and vintage fabrics combined to create items other than blankets.
The kantha stitch has now become a way to provide income for a family.
