Made from 100% pure cotton, this beautiful Kantha King size bed sheet set with 2 pillow covers in an exquisite turquoise blue colour with Pink and black embroidery is a work of art.
" Kantha" making was not a full-time job though women in almost every household were expert in the art in West Bengal, India. Rural women worked at leisure time or during the lazy days of the rainy season, so taking months or even years to finish a Kantha quilt or an intricate bedcover.
The earliest and most basic stitch found in Kanthas is the running stitch seen on the bedsheets with motifs on the sides, the centre of the sheets and on the pillow covers.
The colourful patterns and designs that are embroidered resulted in the name "Nakshi Kantha", which was derived from the Bengali word - Naksha referring to the artistic patterns and mostly with a white background accented with red, blue and black embroidery though later yellow, green, pink and other colours were also included.
Size of the King size bed sheet: 255 cm x 220 cm
