Kanthaembroidery is widely practised in the Indian states of West Bengal, Odisha and Tripura. The kantha embroidery motifs are popular because of the handmade value and aesthetic appeal of kantha embroidery. The Kantha embroidery history suggests that the most extensive production of this type is done in West Bengal where women wear, the handwoven and hand-embroidered saree regularly.
The rare technique of hand stitching is used to create beautiful, delicate motifs on the fabric.

The finished product is soft and smooth making it a suitable choice for comfortable everyday wear.
