original madhubani artwork
Madhubani has been a part of the storytelling fabric of India for over 2500 years. Indigenous to the Mithila region of Bihar in India, the stunning art was rediscovered in the earthquake of 1934 by British Officer William G. Archer who found them strangely reminiscent to the artworks of Miro and Picasso. Traditionally done by women, each piece of art reflects the region’s rich visual culture - myths and legends, the sun and moon, nature and daily life.
Each individual piece is made on a handmade khadi paper treated using Neem & Tulsi (holy basil) using dyes that have been derived entirely out of natural ingredients like turmeric, kusam flowers, indigo, powdered rice, red sandalwood and lampblack.The special natural treatment gives the artwork its distictive stain and makes it immune to silver fish termites.
Our artwork has been sourced directly from a national award winning artisan family led by a dynamic and fiercely independent matriarch.
