Double layered Nakshi Kantha from Bangladesh. This piece is 4,5 M long (5 yards) en 100 cm wide. It is entirely embroidered by hand, by women members of the NGO Kumudini (WFTO member). The top layer is mauve coloured changeant silk and the botton layer is 100% cotton.
It can be washed by hand, with a gentle soap. Drying in the dryer is recommended as will heighten the bobbly effect of the embroidery.
