The kantha or as it is increasingly referred to as the nakshi kantha is an important aspect of Bengali women’s domestic arts and crafts. Kanthas are made in most parts of Bangladesh as well as in West Bengal. With transformations into many forms the kantha can now be found worldwide not only in museums but in catalogues and shops in drawing rooms and boardrooms and worn by fashion models on runways.
