Lotus Rakhi
Leather Puppetry of Andhra Pradesh

Rs. 550.00

What could be better than tying that knot of love and faith with something sustainable? Siblings are like streetlights along the road. They don't make distance any shorter but they light up the path and make the walk worthwhile. On the special occasion of Raksha Bandhan, make a simple wish for happiness with attractive Leather Puppetry Rakhis.

This exquisitely beautiful form of Art popularly known as “Tholu Bommalata” in Telugu is one of the earliest performing arts, dating back to 300 B.C from Andhra Pradesh. The artworks are traditionally folk in style, concept and execution painted on goat leather. 

After a two week long process of cleaning, the skin becomes translucent and ready for the artwork. As with most crafts, in the painting of leather too, chemical colours are replacing natural ones. Traditionally an art used to make shadow puppets, this art has taken a contemporary twist with traditional floral patterns. 

After celebration this durable and colourful Rakhi can be used in jewelry to light up any outfit. The product is from Studio Moya.
