The origin of Kantha embroidery can be traced back to pre-Vedic era. In fact one can see that the symbols used in this form of embroidery are inspired by nature and ancient Indian art. In West Bengal as long as one can trace, this form of art was initiated by rural women who used this form of embroidery to make quilts and to adorn personal garments and fabrics such as sarees, dhotis and handkerchiefs. Eventually as Kantha embroidery gained cultural and religious significance, Kantha sarees gained popularity in religious ceremonies and pujas and auspicious occasions like wedding and child birth.
Interestingly, Kantha embroidery derives its name from the Sanskrit word ‘Kantha’ which has two meanings. The first one refers to it as ‘rags’ signifying the intent of its origin which was mainly to adorn old clothes and make meaningful and beautiful things out of old rags such as making colorful quilts from old dhotis and sarees etc. The second meaning refers to it as ‘throat’ due to its association with Lord Shiva, the Hindu deity who is also referred to as Neel Kantha after the epic Samudra Manthan episode of Hindu mythology.
