Madhubani is an oldest form of art, an Indian style of painting from Mithila region of Bihar, India. This painting is done using fingers, twigs, brushes, nib-pens and matchstick. Natural dyes and pigments are used to make geometric patterns. This is a tradition Indian painting. People believe that the Madhubani painting dates back to the time of Ramayana, when king Janaka ordered his kingdom to paint the town for the wedding ceremony of his daughter Sita. The name Madhubani means, Madhu-honey and Ban-forest.
The painting later got extended and artist started painting the Madhubani art on fabrics to make beautiful and elaborate designs on Sarees and Salwar suits. The bold and bright colours and designs used on Madhubani makes it very flexible to go for a traditional occasion as well as for a party.
Madhubani paintings are inspired by nature, ancient epic, sun, moon, royal courts, social events etc. The specialty of the painting is that there is no space left between the design. Each and every gap is filled with fine print. The Madhubani painting looks stunning on Sarees and is complemented by plain coloured blouses and heavy jewellery.
