Title

A celebration of textures and techniques, this stellar India Bazaar cushion cover is a floral dream! Kantha is perhaps one of the oldest forms of Indian embroidery as it can be traced back to the first and second century A.D. The thought behind this needlework was to reuse old clothes and materials to turn them into something new, making Kantha embroidery one-o- its-kind! This embroidery technique typically uses the classic running stitch method to create spectacular and striking designs with colorful cotton threads. Even to this day, Kantha work remains a significant symbol that displays the marvelous skill and talent of the rural women in Bengal, India. The iconic hand block printing process begins with carving designs into wooden blocks by hand before being dipped in dye and printed onto the fabric. Throughout the printing process, the artisans pay meticulous attention to detail in order to ensure all motifs and colors are harmonized on the fabric. Each color pattern is stamped individually onto the fabric; the process takes time and skill, as the pattern must be stamped repeatedly across the fabric, one at a time. The subtle gaps and overlaps are a beautiful reminder of the handmade charm!
