Kantha Paisley Embroidered Stole, Black
This cotton and silk blended stole is worked with paisley patterns, the typical mango leaf motif, in kantha embroidery across its body. The paisley motif is minutely embroidered by hand in soft golden and bronze thread, with a finish so refined that it looks almost machine made. The stole is dual coloured - half black, half coffee - forming a rich, dark background for the golden kantha embroidery to show through. This stole is perfect to add a formal touch to any outfit, especially for work. It is extremely versatile and can be effortlessly teamed up with western as well as Indian wear.
All the embroidery and needlework is done by hand and the neat, refined finish is a testament to the skills of rural ladies of Assam who have mastered the art of kantha embroidery via a livelihood generation program! While kantha is a type of embroidery popular in West Bengal and Orissa, the rural ladies of Assam have learnt the skill and technique and are supplementing their income with their needlework in their spare time at home.
Also, a part of the proceeds from this sale goes towards conducting menstrual hygiene awareness programs in remote villages of Assam & in making sanitary pads available to them.
