Waterfall Sari from Bengal with Kantha-Embroidered Flowers All-Over
Kantha, a popular style of embroidery that comes from West Bengal, is a significant symbol that displays the skill and talent of the rural women in Bengal. Kantha, which basically means ‘throat’, is associated with Lord Shiva. The story revolves around how Lord Shiva consumed poison while stirring up the ocean, and therefore the significance of this word goes all the way back to the Vedic times. This type of stitch is basically the ‘running’ stitch, and is very simple.
A deep turquoise silk saree decorated with colourful kantha embroidered floral patterns, this silk saree with multi-coloured thread work enhances the beauty of its wearer to the next level. The floral pattern work in various colours adds a different flavour to this saree bringing an uniqueness that is truly attractive. Embroidery is neatly arranged along the borders and pallav of the saree., and is arranged in a sloping style along the length of the saree, covering the enitre pallav, and then gradually tapering off at the pleats.
