Kantha work

Kantha (compare Skt: Kanthā for rag, patched garment) work is a form of free style embroidery from Northeast India and Bangladesh. It is traditionally made from layers of old cloth (usually cotton or silk), which are sewn together forming a quilt, generally using a running stitch(often called a kantha stitch) with a relatively coarse thread.
