Kantha stitch is very delicate, hence the fabric produced by it is light weight and not stiff. Kantha stitch uses long continuous threads which give elasticity to the final product. Most commonly, round neck kurtis are made with round neck kantha stitch material. The neck of the kurti opens up on one side with a round opening for the wearer's neck. This makes it very comfortable for the wearer to wear and wash the kurti later on.
The thread used to weave kantha stitch blue kurtis is made from pure mercerized cotton with a diameter of not less than 10 deniers. The weaving machine used to make this thread is known as a Jacquard loom; it has many strings with tiny hooks on them called as 'eyes'. Each string passes between two upright posts known as 'arm hooks'. To create smooth curves with Kantha stitch, the weaver has to move his loom in different directions with each pass through the warp- hefting area. Each move of his weaving machine is known as 'root pass'.
Kantha stitch blue kurtis have an impeccable reputation for being durable, elegant, soft and easy to clean. It's a traditional craft found in Rajasthan and Gujarat where entire villages are involved in producing exquisite hand woven products using this technique. Round neck kurtis made with kantha stitch blue material are comfortable, not stiff and easy to clean.
