Warli painting is a style of tribal art mostly created by the Adivasis from the North Sahyadri Range in India. This range encompasses cities such as Dahanu, Talasari, Jawhar, Palghar, Mokhada, and Vikramgadh of Palghar district.
With the back-to-the-roots movement taking over every part of our lives, art lovers flaunt the Warli motif with pride. Traditionally, this painting is done on a red ochre background with white paint and these are the only two colours used. But, today, a variety of colours are being used to replicate these artistic motifs on fabrics, home décor or other artistic forms.
Of all those who are taking inspiration from this art, the lifestyle sector is the one that is most fascinated by its richness. From brightly coloured umbrellas to coffee mugs and tea cups, rustic wall clocks, accents for walls and stationery — Warli is pretty much everywhere. And it doesn’t stop here. The art of Warli is every Indian fashion designer’s new darling. From adorning the borders of colourful scarves and kurtis to embellishing the luxurious jute and silk sarees, Warli has taken over the ramp for good.
