Making Hand Embroidered & Applique, Hand Block Printed
This endearing piece is a creative expression of women artisans of West Bengal, and is a gift of love. In the early 17th century, the merchant ships carried intricately worked kantha fabrics to Portugal where they became a rage with the noblewomen.
The decorative applique work horse is a delight to behold. Colourful kantha patterns have been embroidered on silk using simple stitches which forms the language of the piece. The horse motif represents energy and loyalty, it holds a special place in the mythologies of many cultures around the world. Awash with the ethereal charm of rural Bengal, it is a befitting ode to an ancient art form. Wrap it around for a soulful experience.

I placed an order recently and received as a bonus, a small bag with bells and incense in it. It smells lovely.
Hi, I am wondering how I can find your face-wraps. I see your beautiful scarves, but can’t find your face-wrap that you advertised.
THANK YOU so much and I am so glad I found your website. Beautiful products!
Birthday gift for a dear friend. My friend was thrilled with the lovely scarf. She loved the colors!
