Kantha is a native household craft originating from women in rural Bengal. The word kantha refers to a running stitch. Classic Kantha textiles are characterized by this stitch, which is often used to produce motifs such as flowers, birds, animals, and other folk scenes from everyday activities. Kantha is traditionally used to create men's and women's garments, such as dhotis and saris. In addition to garments, several layers of cloth can be embroidered together to create quilts and covering for mirrors, boxes, pillows, and other decorative objects. The Kantha stitch gives the St. Frank textile a beautiful textured character.

The textile is carefully applied to a flax linen substrate, which provides a border between the textile and frame. This piece  is available in our lucite frame. Our signature gold St. Frank plate is featured in the bottom right-hand corner of each piece.
