Kantha

Kantha is extremly simple yet beautiful style of embroidery. Stitch is simple running stitch that gives very beautiful. This is very popular in West Bengal & Bangladesh. Embroidery vastly used in quilt and sarees but could be made into different objects like bags, cuhions, curtains, toilet accessories holder. Kantha means rags. Precious silks and expensive clothes on becoming old were piled into layers and stitched together.
As I said style is simple running stitch but can be differentiated into aligned and non-aligned kantha.
Below I've given simple illustration of 2 types of kantha and some kantha patterns.

Kantha can transform a simple and plain thing to stylish and beautiful one. Below is the before n after effect of cushion and curtain (funny though...I just tried my hand on photo editting s/w) its just an illustration but by little creativity n good imagination u can do wonder.
Before:
 After:
Look at this beautiful kantha shawl.

Even I also made sarees and Salwar kameez using kantha. Kantha work is also used to depict the life story of an artist.

Waiting for right time...

Lot of things to do.....art, craft & decor ideas are what I think day in and day out. Just waiting for right time when all my craft material will be with me....as I'm staying in Pune and all my things lying back in Delhi, where I spent 3 yrs.
Once I get all that I need to start my passion then I'll keep posting interesting things one by one.
Waiting desperately for my colors, brushes, hardboards, clays, glue and lot of things.
As of now enjoy some Diwali clicks..............
