A Kantha jacket is a type of traditional garment originating from the Indian subcontinent, particularly from the Bengal region. Kantha refers to a type of embroidery technique that involves stitching together layers of old saris or cloth with a simple running stitch to create intricate patterns and designs.

Kantha jackets are typically made by stitching together multiple layers of old saris or other pieces of fabric with colorful threads, often in geometric or floral patterns. The result is a unique and vibrant jacket that showcases the rich heritage of Bengali craftsmanship.

These jackets are often lightweight and versatile, making them suitable for various occasions and seasons. They can be worn as casual outerwear or dressed up for more formal events, adding a pop of color and texture to any outfit.

In recent years, Kantha jackets have gained popularity not only in South Asia but also in other parts of the world as a fashionable and sustainable clothing option, reflecting the growing interest in traditional crafts and ethical fashion.
