Lovely Hermes scarf, model Carre Kantha in a lovely deep framboise red (sorry difficult to capt with the flash and thus less flashy as shown here).
A Kantha is a type of sari popular in West Bengal, India. Worn by Bengali women, it is known for its delicate embroidery. Kantha is really the name for the embroidery itself, rather than the sari per se. Any garment or cloth with kantha embroidery (which forms or outlines decorative motifs with running stitch) is a kantha garment. Kantha stitching is also used to make simple quilts. Women in Bengal typically use old saris and cloth and layer them with kantha stitch to make a light blanket or throw or bedspread, especially for children. Kantha is currently very popular with tourists visiting Bengal, and is a specialty of Bolpur/Shantiniketan.
