Recycled Saree Fabric – You may notice that your kitchen towel is already pre-loved, and may display small patches and tiny imperfections. That is what we love about remade saree products, that they have borne witness to the women who loved them first! Every new stitch tells the story of a woman helping break the cycle of poverty for her family and community by using her skills to help provide for her family.

What is Kantha?
Kantha (simply means : “patched cloth”) refers to both the tradition of producing these unique, quilted textiles (making something useful and alluring out of discarded and unused items), as well as the craft and stitch itself (a small, straight-running stitch especially in Bengali embroidery).
