Action description
MASTER ARTIST: NAtional Awardee Mahamaya Sikdar
DESCRIPTION
Meet Master Craftmen, National Awardee and President Awardee Mahamaya Sikdar. She got trained in Kantha embroidery under the shadow of her grandmother and mother who were equally talented masters of Kantha embroidery. Today 300 artisans get trained under her. Kantha embroidery is derived from 'Katha'-which represents the most iconic stories of West Bengal, this rare craft also has sanskrit connotation that means ‘rags’, which reflects the fact that Kantha embroidery is made up of discarded garments or textiles or perhaps the best example of oldest sustainable & recyled craft of the world! It is when mothers had to prepare little bedding for their newly born, they could only think of fabric that is worn, used and not starched. This way they introduced a soft fabric to newly born taking care of fresh skin and warmth of love. These fabrics needed to be prepared and stitched together in a way that it brings out a design. This embroidery or stitching together of fabrics was Kantha- also known as Katha(story)
