Not just a pretty piece
Made with pride
The hand embroidered stitch is called ‘kantha’, a practice native to Bangladesh and West Bengal typically carried out by rural women in groups and passed down the family lines.
This technique is rooted in sustainable practices, being a way to use up scrap fabrics and up-cycling old saris to create beautiful pieces for the home.
The various circular designs repeating throughout the piece represent the significance of the charkha, or spinning wheel. This is symbolic of the Swadeshi movement, where Gandhi encouraged Indians to spin their own cloth as a reaction to British rule in India. It represents economic independence, self reliance and freedom.
