Kantha Bird Cushion
Kantha Cranes hand embroidered on handwoven Kala Cotton cushion cover using running stitch. Running stitches are endlessly done on the chappie(tracing) depicting migration and movement of the black neck cranes which are found in remote parts of the Tibetan Plateau.
From our recent excursion to Phobjikha, Bhutan, the endangered birds created a long lasting impression in our hearts and we wanted to bring it out in the universe as a piece of art.
