The combination of kantha embroidery and bright colours gives me an instant high! I’m a big fan of these lovely little stitches. Having studied as a textile designer, I can completely understand the time and commitment that the artisans have to create something so beautiful. It’s a craft that has been explored and reinvented itself over the years to please the export market. I’m always delighted to see kantha, be it on a placement or a beautiful dupatta. I recently came across designer Tia Pakhi’s collection and I love her usage of pattern and kantha. She also has some lovely styled shoots for her products.You can find more of her work here.
