Kanthaa- Of Folklore and Magical Motifs
Introduced in our spring and summer collections, we have sustained the craft of kantha by way of pieces which feature the craft’s quintessential running stitches woven together to form floral motifs, geometric shapes and birds throughout the fabric in an almost magic forest pattern. With multi-coloured threadwork, stitched on light, pure cotton fabric, our pants and shalwars , summery tunics and saris have been, for the most part, particularly popular. Unostentatious and yet sophisticated, Behbud upholds kantha’s humble design aesthetic by paying homage to a timeless art form which has continued to garner consistent appeal in local fashion.
