The kantha scarf is made in Bengal, India. Kantha is still a traditional craft there that many women master. We cooperate with an organisation that brings tradition and modern design together. By doing so they create work for women in rural areas. This way the artisans are given the opportunity to provide for themselves and their families in a dignified and fair way.
