Silk Kantha Scarves, Reds
Reversible silk scarves with circles of Kantha stitching.
These predominantly red silk scarves from India are made from beautiful printed sari materials with additional kantha stitching. They are reversible so you can drape them to see a flash of the reverse side - two scarves in one!
Kantha is a type of running stitch popular throughout India but especially in Bengal where these scarves originate. The tradition in the villages of Bengal is to upcycle old saris into scarves and bed quilts.
Kantha stitching can be in straight lines or patterned designs. In this collection the stitching takes the form of a series of concentric circles that cover both sides.
They are exquisite pieces of fabric that also make beautiful table runners.
