What is Kantha stitching?

Kantha stitching is a type of embroidery in eastern South Asian countries, particularly Bengal. Layers of old cotton and silk saris are stacked together and stitched to make all types of Kanthas such as quilts, clothing, home decor, bedding, scarves, and more. Kantha is also used as a means of self-expression and is said to bring happiness to the wearer of Kantha.
