This beautiful bed cover is hand-stitched by our artisans from Ayesha Abed Foundation. The embroidery technique they use to make the beautiful pattern is call Kantha. Kantha originates from the way in which Bengali housewives mended old saris by stiching beautiful patterns and thus connecting layers of the old textiles. Even today this craft is an important artistic means of self-expression for both urban and rural women in Bangladesh.
