Pakhi is the Bengali word for bird. The bird motif is a crucial and popular aspect of Indian folk art and has been a recurring motif in indigenous paintings and traditional art forms for centuries.
As society back then was deeply entwined with wildlife, the popular bird imagery has taken on several meanings. Birds drawn in pairs usually represent optimism, fertility, and rebirth.
Folkart - Pattachitra
Indigenous to the eastern Indian states of West Bengal and Odisha, the folk art form of Pattachitra is a reflection of India’s glorious past.
The artists - who are called Patuas - have immortalised religious, mythical, and folklore instances in scrolls of fabric. They use bright bold natural colours and a distinctive art style that is rooted in rural tradition.
In a traditional performance, the Patuas unfurl the scroll as they sing their Pater Gaan and mesmerise the audience as they transport them to a land of myth and legends.
Our handcrafted wooden coasters feature the folk art form Pattachitra and are hand painted individually. They are made of pure wood and are completely plastic-free.
Our products are vegan and pet friendly. They also come in eco-friendly, recyclable, and reusable jute bags.
We boast a complete range of handmade products. The Pattachitra coasters are crafted by local woodworkers and painted by elite, heritage artisans. They add the perfect touch to your home.
Our products are individually handcrafted and hand-painted. Therefore, they might not be identical as they are not mass-produced.
