Khadi Lahar

& Santiniketan

The women of Santiniketan have been sewing layers of recycled saris together to make quilts for centuries. It's a running stitch technique called Kantha and is currently the fashion diktat of the region. In West Bangal, Kantha has been elevated beyond traditional quilts to elaborate embroidery that adorns everything from Khadi cotton to Tussar silk. We hope to expand the reach of Kantha beyond traditional Indian wear by incorporating it into styles more commonly worn on this side of the world.
