The traditional folk art is famous as Kantha which means 'Patched cloth'. The original Kantha is double faced where the design appeared identical on either sides of the fabric. The great length of stitch is broken into tiny tacking's which gives almost a dotted appearance on either sides of the quilt like "Do rukha". Sometimes the embroidery is so finely done that it is very difficult to identify the wrong side.
