Our Kantha scarves are handmade lovingly by our women artisans of The Sewing Project, a non-profit women's society providing livelihoods trainings to women in semi-rural Unnao, Uttar Pradesh, India. Each scarf takes at least 15 days to create. The scarves are one of a kind - panels of saris are embroidered together creating a one of a kind scarf in the entire world! No two scarves are alike, a unique fashion statement. Read more about the creation process.

ARTISAN STORY:

The scarf features a bright pink tie-and-die on one side and the neutral block printed pattern on the other side. The traditional tie-and-die technique is used in Rajasthan to craft saris in brilliant colors.

This scarf has been made by talented Gudiya, her mother, and the women in the family. Gudiya has been trained by The Sewing Project as a seamstress and these scarves provide the much needed livelihood for Gudiya's family.
