Madhubani Handpainted Ladies Cotton Shawl / Scarf / Dupatta - Turquoise
From hands of artists in the MIthila region of India and Nepal come the Madhubani paintings. 'Madhuban' in Hindi means fragrant forest, which is evident in the choice of subjects and the colors used.
This shawl / dupatta / scarf is painted by hand on pure cotton once with a fine silk border, after the weaving is completed. There are a number of different styles of painting, like 'Bharni', 'Gonna' or Tatto, but the common traits are colours and the use of black lines to define the border of the subjects. Motifs are peculiar to the area and the most common ones are fish, birds, and deities from the culture.
It takes a number of days to painstakingly finish each item. This is best paired with a plain outfit to really make the garment shine and showcase the art and style.
