$165.00 USD


Curtains with the Bandhini inspired tie and dye print. Indian Ethnic Home Decor Idea. "Neel Maalai": This two panel designer set  gives home decor an interesting new twist-  India is famous globally for its Bandhini tie and dye style of fabric staining and coloring. Bandhini or bandej is an early day tie & dye method that dates back some 400 years. This word comes from ‘tying’, which is 'Bandhan', in Hindi. Painstakingly laborious, the original art of tying and dyeing gives the distinctive diamond pattern and colors. Inspired by this style this print features the diamond shaped patches of sky blue in different tones, giving the curtain a vibrancy! Coupled with the speckled sparkling stone embroidered design printed border that is often found in sarees in India, this graphic design brings an aesthetic look and feel to home décor  that serves as a "Neel Maalai", meaning "The Blue Garland", to adorn your home. Printed on 100% polyester fabric. Traditional, ethnic design made contemporary.

Also available is the "Paa Maalai" version- The Green Garland. The same stunning Bandhini tie and dye theme look with a bit of twist in the jewel like border print, crowning the tie & dye diamond waves.

Whether it is your family room or living room or your french windows, this drapery will light up your room in a one-of-a-kind way.

A great gift for women who have that keen aesthetic eye for home décor. For the lady who seems to have it all. For the love of your life, your wife. Or your best friend, your sister, mom or aunt or grand mom. Surprise them truly, with this ethnic exclusive.

Design by India. Made in California.

India’s textile & fabric traditions go down centuries- the talent of the craftsman and his dedication to his craft, passed on from one generation to another. A weave, a mix of colors, a design or a motif, a print, a piece of applique work- each a labor of love for the artisan

Artikrti’s [meaning 'artistic creations'] mission is to take the fascinating kaleidoscope that is India and get the world outside to experience it. And add a stroke of beauty that’s different, to each woman’s life- to her personal beauty and her home.

Thank you for dropping by. In true Indian tradition, we hope your visit to Artikrti was a pleasurable one and we do hope to see you again in the future.
