Rangoli - traditional designs

Rangoli is traditional folk art from India wherein colorful designs  are drawn on the floor to mark a festive occasion. The traditional concept has been translated into designs that can be reused in various settings.

 

The Rangoli pieces shown below can be used to decorate tables for weddings, on the floor with tea light candles to add a festive buzz or simply use them on center tables to add a bit of exotic in your rooms. Alternatively, you can put them in a picture frame and convert them into wall art.

 

The decorative pieces make it to the "good gift ideas" list and why not - they are creative, practical, versatile and very useful gifts.
