Tales of Navodha – by Bindani
Bindani has just launched a collection inspired by the Pichwai Art form. Their bridal collection ‘Tales of Navodha’ is an inspiration from the age old Pichwai Paintings.
The word Pichwai comes from ‘pichh’ meaning back, and ‘wai’, meaning textile hanging. Originally, pichwai paintings were used to decorate the temple of Shrinathji in Nathdwara, hung behind the deity to celebrate different seasons, festivals and events in Lord Krishna’s life. Over time, pichwais also found a place in the homes of art connoisseurs, owing to their visual appeal. Like several other traditional Indian art forms, the art of Pichwai is also dying, and requires recognition and revival.
The art of Pichwai delves into the world of Lord Krishna and Bindani’s Collection prefaces unique outfits that showcase the art beautifully, in all its glory but adapting it to a more classic pallette and making it more appealing to the modern sophistication.
