Sujni (Source of Image)
Sujni is very similar to Kantha. Because both are made of old materials and
embroider with the thread unpicked from borders of saris. But they differ in techniques:
Kantha (Source of Image)
• In Sujni, running stitch worked in straight line but in Kantha they use spiral,
circular and conical forms.
• In Sujni the outline of the motifs are done by chain stitch in dark colour but in
Kantha out lines are done by running stitch.
• In Sujni the motifs are filled with running stitch and rest of the area is also
embroidering by the running stitch with the same base colour thread but in Kantha only
motifs are filled.
