Cotton with Kantha Border

Cotton with Kantha Border


Cotton and Kantha Border Gopi Skirt by IndiOdyssey

Medium weight cotton red geometric designs on a light beige back ground, with a hand stitched cotton patch work kantha border. 

The border is a completely different piece of material attached the base cotton fabric.  It is most likely attached by a completely different company (kind of like an after market accessory made specifically for the Gopi skirt market).  It is a patch work ofkantha embroidery stitching, made from new cotton scraps, left over from clothing manufacturers.  Hand stitched in parallel lines of light green cotton embroider threads.  The kantha border is 6.5 inches wide.

To make the Gopi skirt for you, the kantha border will be separated from the cotton fabric.  The cotton will then be cut into 32 panels with the pattern running vertical, which gives a much nicer look - as we all know - vertical strips are slimming!  The kantha border is then reattached as one continuos border.  

Both fabrics are 100% medium weight cotton, hand loomed and hand stitched.  Get your Gopi outfit made out of this totally unique, one of a kind fabric today!!  (We bought all the fabric available - 9 meters - so there is not another piece like this out there!!)

When ordering your Gopi outfit, please include this fabric code: GOF006, along with your measurements, and a choice of matching scarf color.
