Proficiency In Pipli Work-Beginners Level
The Pipli art form emerged as a temple art in the 11th century, under the patronage of kings and nobility. Now used to create a large number of ceremonial and decorative products, the handicrafts are unparalleled in flexibility and versatility, permitting experimentation and encouraging innovation. A community of professional tailors, colloquially known as ‘Darjis’, traditionally practices the craft. They consider the craft as a service or ‘seva’ for the Lord of the temple.Pipli art has gained fame worldwide owing to its bright colours, exquisite embroidery patterns and intricate weaving representing aspects of life in an Indian village.A key characteristic of the Pipli art style involves three-dimensional patterns, made by the folding of the upper piece of cloth into triangles and attaching them to the base.
