Nakshi Kantha is a type of folk art of Bangladesh. The art has been practiced in rural Bengal for centuries. The name "nakshi kantha" became popular among literate people after the publication of Jasimuddin's poem at 1929. The basic material used is thread and old cloth. The colorful patterns and designs that are embroidered resulted in the name “Nakshi Kantha”, which was derived from the Bengali word “naksha”, which refers to artistic patterns. The early kanthas had a white background accented with red, blue and black embroidery; later yellow, green, pink and other colors were also included. The running stitch called "kantha stitch" is the main stitch used for the purpose. Traditionall
