During her stay at ITC Maratha, fashion blogger Shonima Kaul discovers cute warli art forms adorning the slumber tray in the room and the wall-hangings across the hotel corridors. Curious, she travels to the workshop to meet the artists to learn more about this form of art.
Warli is a traditional form of art from Maharashtra. It is mostly practiced by the tribal communities of the North Sahyadri mountains. Warli art dates back to the mythical Mahabharata and Ramayana eras. The art was traditionally used to adorn homes.
