It has been encased in a beautifully embellished silver finish missive case, historically used by horsemen to safely carry maps and important documents. Elaborately decorated with Repousse motifs in low relief achieved by hammering the metal from the reverse side to get exquisite and elaborate designs.

This gift comes together in a beautiful amalgamation of the rich culture of India and its breath- taking craft techniques.

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.
