"Kantha is a type of embroidery popular in West Bengal. The use of kantha is popular in "Kantha saris" traditionally worn by women in Bengal
Kantha stitching is also used to make simple quilts, commonly known as Nakshi Kantha. Women in Bengal typically use old saris and cloth and layer them with kantha stitch to make a light blanket, throw or bedspread, especially for children. Kantha is very popular with tourists visiting Bengal and is a specialty of Bolpur"
