Product story

For centuries, Bengali women have carefully sewn time-softened saris with straight, even stitches into beautiful, functional items. This traditional technique is known as kantha. Basha continues this tradition by matching contrasting saris, which are then hand-stitched into one-of-a-kind pieces. Every kantha item is meticulously handcrafted and unique, and can take anything from two to thirty-nine hours to complete, depending on its size and complexity.
