When we speak of Indian magnificence, our minds trace back to India’s hugely celebrated, culturally rich & glorious history when it was touted as Sone ki Chidiya.
Different regions of India still use ancient folk painting and art techniques passed down from generation to generation.
Various art forms have developed over time due to the diversity and distinctiveness of each culture; some have remained unaffected by modernisation, while others have adapted to new paints and materials. Each primarily deals with epic religious portrayals of Gods and Goddesses, but they are all exceptional, admirable, and unmatched in their own right.
The magnificence of Indian art endures because it is still relevant today. Excel turns back time by introducing their latest collection Deshaj - where nature meets Indian roots. Ideal for living rooms, this indigenously artistic collection has wallpaper designs that honour the beauty of the bygone eras of ancient India.
Best Traditional Wallpaper Designs For Modern Homes in India
Deshaj aims to capture these timeless tales of traditional Indian art and textiles on the canvas of your walls.
Deshaj draws inspiration from a number of sources from the archives of Indian art & textile history. The wallpapers are essentially stories of the timeless traditional Indian art and textiles of Kalamkari, focusing on the Machilipatnam floral style. The name ‘Kalamkari’ is derived from the Persian words Qalam (pen) and Kari (craftsmanship), which together mean the art of drawing with a pen.
Kalamkari, which literally translates to "pen drawings," is found in two varieties in India: Machilipatnam, which is derived from Machilipatnam in the state of Andhra Pradesh. It refers to block-printed art. Today, kalamkari art is used to decorate sarees and ethnic clothing, depicting everything from flora and fauna to epics like the Mahabharata or Ramayana.
Flowers, peacocks, paisley, and divine characters from the Ramayana and Mahabharata are among the motifs drawn in this ancient art of Kalamkari.
Kalamkari arose from the art of storytelling.
Let’s now look at what some of these motifs entail.
It is inspired by a kalamkari textile fragment from an Indian rug dating from the late 17th century. The kamal, or lotus flower, is a popular motif in Indian art and textiles. It symbolises the power of life and the eternal order of the union of earth, water, and sky. The stunning Persian floral composition is dramatic yet serene, enhancing any space.
Valley of Chintz
Bedcovers and wall hangings from India's 18th-century Coromandel Coast serve as inspiration here. The artwork depicts a plant that grows from the ground up, spreading its branches in a metamorphic manner reminiscent of earthly life.
This Chintz-inspired piece combines modern Euro-Indian aesthetics with traditional stylised florals and paisleys. This print is inspired by the traditional handprints and paintings created along India's southern coasts.
