Where they’re from:
Kanthas originate in Bangladesh and the eastern states of North India, where women artisans intricately stitch together layer upon layer of old silk saris and tossed-aside cloth scraps with thousands of small & delicate "kantha" stitches to create scarves and blankets as well. Kantha is the ancient Indian art of embroidery, actually the word kantha refers to the simple running stitch used to create the blankets.
