This amazing silk scarf has overall hand embroidery in the Kantha stitch, which is a running stitch. It is the traditional handicraft of Bengal. We met the founder of this social enterprise for women that made this scarf when we were in Calcutta. The enterprise trains and supports the women who made this beautiful piece. The embroidery is fine. The drape of the silk is just right and the unusual color combination is fresh and amazingly neutral.
