A Kantha woven jacket is an artisanal garment with a rich cultural history, originating from Bengal. Made from cotton or silk and decorated with colorful threads, each jacket features unique embroidery designs that can include floral, animal and folklore motifs. They are often reversible and vary in style from modern to looser fits. The construction is laborious, combining decoration and padding to give texture and warmth. Practical and comfortable, these jackets require delicate care, ideally hand washing. They represent not only fashion but also the tradition and craftsmanship of Bengal.
