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 candles come in authentic Terracotta jars. We use 100% natural soy wax for the candle, which is hand poured in small batches. The wicks used are 100% cotton to ensure a clean burn.
The Terracotta jars feature the hand-painted folk art of Pattachitra.
Our products are vegan and pet friendly. We boast of a complete range of handmade products. Our Terracotta jars are crafted by local potters - painted by elite artisans - and finally, filled by us; with the assistance of hopes, dreams, and a few pairs of hands.
Enjoy your Candle
Our fragrances are crafted for your pleasure. To ensure a fulfilling indulgence, make sure you,
- Trim the wick to a quarter of an inch before lighting the candle.
- Let the wax melt to the very edge when using it for the first time.
- Do not burn for more than 4 hrs.
- Do not blow on the candle to extinguish it; use the lid to snuff the candle after use.
