Few call it Kolam , few call it Rangoli and few others call it muggu. Whatever be the name, the beautiful geometric designs at every Indian home’s thresholds steal the heart of everyone leaving them in awe.
While the age old purpose of Kolam was to feed ants and small insects appreciating their co-existence, the Kolam came a long way in terms of transformation and designs. While in most parts of India, where it is called Rangoli, it is a rather colorful art.On the other hand sophistication and complexity is what matters in traditional south Indian Kolams.
South Indian Kolams especially are known for their doodle patterns and their connect the dots designs which are a love for every one , so much that popular designer house ‘Golden Threads’ by Kavitha Gutta designed an entire Bridal collection using the muggu designs. To quote on the occasion even Tanishq , a popular jewellery brand designed a whole collection of jewellery inspired from these Kolam designs, with Star actor Sri devi as their Branding partner.
While Kolam inspired clothing and accessories are being designed in the modern era, did you ever get any wild thought about why not design Kolam taking inspiration from Jewellery. Sounds crazy right? That’s what the team from MashKolam tried . And guess what? They are super cool.
Intricate kanti mala as a part as a Kolam? Hell Yeah!! and its spot on.
Not only the white flour Kolams, Mash Kolam also tried incorporating a dash of color to these designs, to bring them to life.
These designs are truly stunning and Team BE suggests that they would be great as a wedding decor down the aisle and it would be as unique as you are.
Probably it is now time for us to pick up some rice flour and start working on such some crazy designs. Who knows if your design could be the next big hit. For more such interesting trends watch out for further post for Brides Essentials .
