a kantha break

Not my work!

I love kantha cloth, made mainly in Bangladesh. The amount of work in them is really amazing. Considering the conditions most of the stitchers live it, I can't imagine the concentration needed to keep the attention to detail these have. I would like to travel to India, Bangladesh and the sub-continent someday, I have several correspondences there, and it's always a treat to receive a real letter, sometimes with colorful designs drawn all over them.
