Madhubani Prints – Fabrics inspired by the traditional paintings

Madhubani prints are the current favourites in sarees that the market seems to have become bewitched by. Soft and silky offerings that carry a testimony of what inspirational art is when there is a subject worth emulating. Sarees that carry thematic representations of the famous Madhubani paintings on the facing canvas, the pallu or end piece.

Madhubani Art Today
Madhubani painting remained confined to a compact geographical area and though the skills have been passed on through centuries, the content and the style have largely remained the same. That is largely the reason why Madhubani art received the GI label or status. The paintings mostly depict man, his association with nature, objects all around in Nature, flora, fauna, and then themes like court scenes, social events like weddings, interspersed with nature objects in the free spaces. It is said to have five distinctive styles - Bharni, Katchni, Tantrik, Nepali and Gobar. The upper castes chose religious themes and depicted Gods and Goddesses in their paintings - Bharni, Katchni, Tantrik. The lower castes still carry on with Godna and Gobar styles.

Madhubani became known internationally when the President awarded Padma Shri to Jagdamba Devi in 1975. Others also received National awards subsequently then on.
