Motifs..Of Peacocks,Elephants,Paisley designs

I have often wondered why these designs are so preferred over the others but these age old traditional motifs are so enchanting that you just cannot give them up!!

Isn't it so? Have a dekko

peacock Pendant

The picture isn't half as pretty as the pendant itself{my poor photography skills}



Traditional peacock motif on a south silk saree



Paisley design

Black and Golden Paisley designed kurta from BIBA, The famous fashion house





Silver Zardosi on a saree



What a bracelet!!



Elephants on a placemat



Elephants are huge,strong and sturdy but the intricacy of this delicate design fascinates me.I have all the mind to embroider this motif on a bedsheet.what do u think?

Yes, I think you should embroider it too. Love the Biba kurta. What is it about the paisley that makes it so eternally Indian?

Paisleys are my fav! I picked up a paisleyish block print as well as a camel block print

Love the last motif. Can't wait to see how your embroidered version will look like.
