These #dupattas are covered with vibrant hues, each telling a different mythological story concerning the ever dynamic Indian heritage.
Years and years of our traditions that have been handed down from our naanis to our moms and then to us, finds a place in such exquisite artwork! Coming from the Madhubani district in Bihar, the dupattas are almost like our vintage heirlooms carrying the essence of an epic era.
Moreover, these pieces of clothing carry the very aroma of our soil rooting a deep connection to Mother Earth! The fragrance of the Indian mitti, the narratives of our wars and tales of love – seek homage in such gorgeous accessories.
We, the family of India Imprints, being an ardent lover of hand-painted artworks, proudly cater these beauties as we witness the true majestic artistry of this unique talent!
Themes like #Dasavataar, the folklore tale of Raavana are quite popular imprints which you may find on Madhubani dupattas. Essentially a women’s art, Madhubani first came in the form of paintings. Tales of Sita and Rama, especially the tale of their wedding nuptials were painted with extreme intricacy exhibiting nothing but strong emotions of LOVE!
However, the Madhubani art did not remain a prisoner of time, shackled in staunch orthodoxy! Today it finds its place in sarees and dupattas and gains true appreciation from art lovers all over the world.
For several female workers today, it has become their source of economic dependence. What was originally painted on the walls of their home now finds its way on papier Mache and diverse clothing.
