Sarees with kantha embroidery are typically made of pure silk, tussar silk or cotton in India. The embroidery is done by the rural craftswomen, with the art being passed down through the generations over several centuries. Each saree takes weeks or sometimes even months to prepare, depending on the intricacy of the embroidered patterns.
