 Famous Rajasthani Art and Crafts!!!

Tie and Dye or Bandhani: - Bandhani sarees are popular for their vibrant colors and beautiful designs. As the name suggests, this technique involves two stages: tying sections of a length of cloth (silk or cotton) and then dunking it into vats of colour. The rainbow-tinged turbans of the Rajputs and the odhnis of their women are shaded by this method of resist dyeing. Your visit to Jaipur won’t be complete without a trip to the nearby towns of Bagru and Sanganer, where you can observe the Chhipa community of dyers at work. The main colours used in Bandhani are yellow, green, red, pink, and black. It is essentially a household craft supervised by the head of the family. The fabric is skillfully knotted by the women, while the portfolio of dyeing rests with the men. The Jaipur dyer rarely works with more than two dye baths while the additional colours are spot dyed, which makes the process much easier. Thereafter, the fabric opens out into amazing designs in kaleidoscopic colours: dots, circles, squares, waves and stripes.

Leheria on the other hand, is a pattern that can be easily identified in the turbans worn by the Rajasthanis (people of Rajasthan). The wave-like style, has given the art such a name as ‘Leher’ in Hindi means waves. This style can be easily identified by the series of diagonal lines of a single color that runs across a white background thus delivering an impressive effect to the entire fabric.

Antiques: - Antiques can be found in small shops in places all over Rajasthan, as well as in large handicraft stores, and are part of the landscape of the state. Their distinctive color and designs make them popular among the tourists who buy them as souvenirs and as decorative items for their homes. The large iron oil jars painted in the pichwai style, depicting the love scenes, are just an example. Similarly, variety of kitchen utensils, votive objects and even camel saddles attract attention of the visitors.

Block Printing: - Rajasthan has a long and distinguished tradition of printing with finely carved wooden blocks. This method, though labourious, is actually quite simple and merely calls for precision. The cloth is laid out flat on a table or bench and a freshly dipped block is handpressed on to the fabric to form a continuous, interlocking pattern. The block carries dye if the original colour of the cloth has to be preserved. Traditonally, block-printing relied on the use of natural dyes and pigments, but now synthetic dyes have gained currency as they are cheaper.  Bagru is known for earth colors and geometric patterns while Sanganeri clothes have bright colors and floral patterns. The Sanganeri prints are done on a white background and the Bagru prints are essentially done on background of red and black.

Jaipur Blue Pottery: - Blue Pottery is a specialty of Rajasthan. Clay is extensively used for making pots, dolls and other objects. These are painted with various types of images like folk divinities and are sold in village fairs during festive times such as Gangaur, Teej and Diwali. Vases, flower pots, bowls, water pots and other objects are produced in traditional geometrical and floral motifs, as well as hand-painted details of Rajasthani legends. The different regions of Rajasthan have distinctive style of pottery. Jaipur is famous for its blue glazed pottery that doesn't use simple clay but ground quartz stone, fuller's earth and sodium sulphate. Terra-cotta pottery is also quite popular in Rajasthan. Molela, a village near Udaipur is specialized in making clay images of deities for ceremonial occasions.

Much like Persian carpets, Rajasthani hand-knotted carpets have geometric motifs and formal designs with a border and central motif. The motifs have indeed been localized and include peacocks and other local icons. Jaipur and Bikaner are believed to be the pioneer centres in carpet weaving.
