Kantha Work

              Kantha Embroidery from West Bengal is very famous for its quilts, embroidery on sarees and  household articles. Main stitch used in kantha work is running  and kantha filling stitch looks like satin stitch.
Simple running stitch , stitched so beautifully and with lovely colour combination.

                Kantha embroidery is best shown by " Surayia Rahman".   And a documentary film in the making.

                 To know more about her check this link Surayia Rahman.  Her work narrates household activity through embroidery and its beyond imagination.

Kantha Work 
                   I would say Surayia Rahman inspires and motivates me, surely no one can match her work. Above work is just trial to learn more, more........
