For centuries, Bengali women have carefully sewn time-softened saris with straight, even stitches into beautiful, functional items. This traditional technique is known as kantha.
Our artisans continue this tradition by taking factory-rejected pure cotton saris and hand-stitching them into one-of-a-kind pieces for your table.
Basha’s kantha items are meticulously handcrafted and unique, and can take anything from two to thirty-nine hours to complete, depending on their size and complexity.
