A vintage kantha scarf is a wearable and versatile artisan treasure. Wrapped, tied, bowed they are a lend themselves to creative styling. Worn simply they add texture and colour to an outfit. Cooling in the Summer and warming in the Winter this will become a year round favourite and wardrobe staple.

Traditionally Bengali women used a simple embroidery "kantha" stitch to upcycle fabrics creating a revived and new textile. Loose ends of the thread create a simple raw tassled hem. 

Handpicked by our local Bless Stories India member Shruti.

This kantha scarf has a super soft silk handle.

 based Each scarf/shawl is reversible with 2 different sides that creates a multitude of colour and print options.

There may be some loose ends of the kantha stitch on the scarf - this is part of the nature of the technique.
