Crafts of Bengal have a very special place when we talk of Indian craft. Every craft in Bengal from pottery to textile has an enigma of its own. One such authentic craft of Bengal is Kantha stitch. We go gaga over modern designer sarees with sequins and Zardozi embroideries, whereas arts like Kantha embroidery fails to charm because it is rare and a rural craft. Can anyone tell me about this exquisite art and where it is found in Bengal?

Kantha holds a very special place within the village life in Katna, West Bengal.

I don`t have any idea about saree shops in Mumbai, but I can suggest you to opt for online shopping. There are many shopping sites where Kantha stitch materials are available.

It is said that the Kantha work mostly resembles a story or a poem that is being created on a piece of cloth. Is this true?
