"Sevya" is a Sanskrit word that means "caring through service." Sevya is dedicated to preserving the indigenous art forms and cultures of India by supporting the artisan communities who uphold these traditions. All of Sevya's fair trade products are made by artisan groups using centuries-old craft traditions, with the finest natural fibers and materials. Sevya works with artisan cooperatives throughout India to develop contemporary styles and designs that showcase their traditional and eco-friendly methods of handcraft--including hand-loom, block-printing, tie-dye, and embroidery.
Sevya’s Cotton Kantha Scarves are handmade by women artisans in West Bengal, India using 100% cotton up-cycled saris. Each piece is unique and is made from two saris that are stitched together using the traditional kantha embroidery technique. Featuring handmade tassels with vibrant prints and colors on each side, these handmade kantha scarves are works of art and showcase the rich textile crafts of eastern India.
