Madhuban is a small town in Bihar and legend goes that Raja Janak asked people to decorate their houses to celebrate Sita Mata’s wedding to Shri Ram. It was at this occasion that the Madhubani or Mithila art was born when people painted their walls.
Madhubani art depicts heightened expressions using double lines called Kachni and Bharni. Interestingly this intricate art only uses natural colours obtained from leaves, flowers, roots and vegetables. Primarily Mithila art depicts three scenes - Mythological or Religious, Socio-Cultural and Nature-inspired.

While every effort is made to present the sarees in their natural colours, subtle variations between images and actual colours may be the result of lighting conditions and digital photography, and the colour/screen settings of your digital devices.
Slight irregularities are inherent to the process of creating traditional handwoven fabric. Instead of taking away from the beauty of the saree, they enhance its uniqueness and charm. The irregularities attest to the fact that the saree is a genuine, handcrafted product.
Ghicha (or Gheecha) silk yarns are primarily produced in Bihar, Jharkhand and Chattisgarh. The silk is a by-product obtained during the production of traditional Tussar or Eri silk. The production of Ghicha silk involves a manual and laborious process - the threads from the cocoons need to be pulled out delicately by hand (hence the name Ghicha or Gheecha) and reeled manually. Due to this process, the silk yarns are shorter in length. Although manual reeling gives Ghicha silk a coarse characteristic, the finish is smooth and lustrous. Madhubani paintings, also known as Mithila paintings, trace their origin to the Mithila region in Bihar and Nepal. The art, which goes back 2,500 years to the time of the Ramayana, was displayed by women on the floor and walls of their houses during celebrations and festivals. The magic of these paintings has been transferred to fabric and other material using hand-held wooden blocks, thereby reviving interest in a lost art form and priceless heritage.
