I have been told by the workshop that this is one of the oldest sari's they have ever purchased. The beautiful tribal needlwork is original and a truly one of a kind.
Our Kantha Scarf Collection is re-purposed from second hand Sari's in Kolkata, India. Two lengths of Sari are cut, then Kantha stitched together which is a traditional sewing technique from the West Bengal area of India.
The scarves are made by village ladies that come and collect work once a week and take it back to their village, this enables them to work from home taking care of their families and earning a fair-wage. Each scarf has has a different colour or pattern on the reverse side.
Scarf Length 32X 200cm
All fabrics used are vintage and may have some sign of wear from its previous use.
The Ashaki Scarf fabric is in good conditon, there are a couple of darker marks on the cream reverse side that could not be removed when washed, but are hardily visible.
* Please hand wash in cold water
