CONCEPTION OF KANTHA EMBROIDERY

A needle craft which emerged in eastern part of the sub-continent, including parts of West Bengal, Odisha and Tripura, Kantha is one such embroidery technique, that is not only a rage in the western countries but also, among the eastern artisanal community of India. Known to be a women-centric craft of ancient times, who started it more as a hobby to utilize old & waste fabrics; little was known, that it will become a heritage craft of all times. Because they were salvaged from used garments that had been frequently laundered, the colors tend to be muted.

The Sanskrit word kontha means ‘rags’. One legend links their origins to Lord Buddha and his disciples, who used to cover themselves with garments made from discarded rags that were patched and sewn together. Rags displayed at Indian shrines or tied to tree limbs symbolize prayers and wards off the evil eye. The oldest existing examples of kantha, date from the early 1800s. They are embroidered with blue, black and red threads that were unravelled from saree borders. The word kantha also means ‘throat’ and was named so due its association with the Hindu deity, Lord Shiva.

It’s origin can be traced back to 2 A.D.  But, Kantha embroidery as we know it today was found in Krishnadas Kaviraj’s 500 year old book, Chaitanya Charitamrita . Kantha was used as a medium of cultural and religious significance, which came about as a result of Hinduism’s influence and was used in pujas to celebrate weddings and births.
