Nakashi Kantha Cushion (med bolster)

Nakashi Kantha Cushion (med bolster)


Each cover has been made from part of a repurposed Nakshi Kantha, backed with natural linen fabric to frame this exquisite embroidery. Nakshi Kantha is an age-old traditional embroidery technique, made using layers of cotton saris bound together with tiny running stitches. An over-embroidered design often of natural motifs such as leaves and animals is typical. Using a limited color palette these fabrics are striking in their naive portrayal of rural life. 60-80 years of age the work is very detailed, each cushion a unique piece of Bengali history.

Oblong - 40cm x 60cm

Each cover is carefully made from a repurposed kantha quilt. Kantha, the name given to an age-old embroidery technique. Layers of cotton saris are bound together with tiny running stitches creating a unique quilted surface
