Reproducing bed covers, wrapping cloths for books and other valuables, floor covers and mats for ceremonial purposes from the late 19th to early 20th centuries, this collection captures and showcases the 'kantha' tradition at a precarious time of change and struggle. Kantha is a type of embroidery created using the finest cotton sourced from the part of Bengal where the Ganges River flows into the Bay of Bengal.
