‘Kantha’ is the name of a traditional running stitch technique combining multiple layers of salvaged material, or ‘rags’ – kantha in Sanskrit. Kantha work originates from Eastern India, and creates a heavier, quilted weight to textiles. It’s a fully sustainable and waste free method of repurposing and reviving old pieces of fabric into new creations.
