    Hai

    Excellent explanation about Kantha work. i am really tempted to do this. Kindly suggest on which saree the work will look great.

    I thought of buying a Kasavu saree or tussar silk. Can anybody suggest the sari material?

    Wonderful and tempting thread. I have copied the designs posted here. Thanks to all.

    Hi Andal,

    Tussar silks are usually the preferred medium but nowadays crepes and silks like Bangalore silks and art silks are also being used for the embroidery

    Correct me if I am wrong Su
