Kantha : recycled and embroidered textiles of Bengal by Courtenay C McGowen( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The part of Bengal where the Ganges River flows into the Bay of Bengal has historically been the source of the finest cotton ever produced. The kind of embroidery known as 'kantha' is created from this material, for daily use in many different contexts and in many different sizes. It deploys a simple running stitch in quilting layers of used cloth; details are embroidered using satin and stem stitches with thread taken from the colored borders of cast-off saris and dhotis. The workmanship varies from the crude to the complex and refined, but they are all made for daily use for various household purposes. The tribal culture of this region and its sense of continuity were evident until the early part of the 20th century, but the true unraveling of the 'kantha' tradition came with partition, followed by the devastation brought on by the mass exodus of Hindu and Muslim populations in Pakistan, East Pakistan and India. Now, with global warming, the rising waters are resulting in the disappearance of villages, along with the livelihoods of the inhabitants.

Dowry : Eastern European painted furniture, textiles & related folk art( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Embroidering textiles for dowry and embellishing the home and its furnishings has long been a woman's art in Central and Eastern Europe. This heritage has been passed from mother to daughter for generations in preparation for marriage and raising a family. Through the expressive work of her hands, a young woman and potential bride reveals her character in a silent language of art. It is a practical and frugal art of transforming common materials into extraordinary personal and domestic adornment. This book provides a glimpse into the distinctive beauty of Czech, Slovak and Moravian textiles and Hungarian painted wood furnishings related to the art of the dowry. Their designs relate to the natural beauty and abundant floral and animal life of such regions as the Hungarian Great Plain surrounded by the Carpathian Mountains, as well as to the design influences of the many cultures that have occupied this region.--From publisher description
