- New Delhi, July 3 (IANS) The six-yard gets ethnic with a mythological twist - a range of saris inspired by Madhubani paintings with focus on mythology has been launched.
Utsav Fashion, an online fashion brand, has launched its exclusive collection of saris to promote culturally rich Madhubani district in Bihar by focusing on Madhubani designs, traditional fabrics and textiles.
The paintings are skilfully made using wooden nibs and brushes on cotton and pure silk fabrics, making each sari an art piece.
The subtle and sombre colours are extracted from ingredients like turmeric and hibiscus. Intricate Madhubani painted motifs also reflect an understated elegance.
Artisans also create symbols like fish, sun and bamboo leaves on the handwoven fabrics to signify its deep correlation with nature.
The wide range of Madhubani saris, starting from Rs.3950 are available only at Utsav Fashion.
