This unique kimono style lounge jacket is made of wild silk (Tussar silk) and hand-embroidered by rural women in West Bengal. They are specialized in Nakshi kantha. It is a traditional basting stitch from the region, composed of motifs influenced by religion, culture and the lives of the women who sew them.

Embroidering the process of Nakshi Kantha

Embroidering this kimono jacket takes months. Under the auspices of 60-year-old Takdira Begum, a national winner of her kantha work, skilled female artisans embroider this beautiful fabric by hand. They embroider about 3 hours a day.

Design embroidery pattern

The first step in this process is designing the pattern, which is then drawn on tracing paper. This is done by Takdira Begum herself, who also determines the color palette. Then the lines of the pattern are pierced by hand with a pin and the paper is laid over the silk fabric. A paste of chalk and turpentine is rubbed over the paper and seeps through the small holes on the fabric below.

Embroidery at home

Once the pattern lines have been applied to the silk fabric, it is ironed and distributed to the women who take it home and embroider there. Once completed, the fabric is hand washed several times to remove any stains and the trace lines.

The jacket has a comfortable kimono model and is lined with silk.
