A gentle wash and line drying are recommended to maintain the vibrant colour and protect the hand stitching of your cotton kantha product.
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. Basha continues this tradition by matching contrasting saris, which are then hand-stitched into one-of-a-kind pieces. Every kantha item is meticulously handcrafted and unique, and can take anything from two hours to one month to complete, depending on its size and complexity.
