It is a famous and traditional art form of Bihar. Madhubani art of the Bihar state has been undergoing alteration where its application in the original composition has been diminished owing to social and economic changes now a days. There is need to explore possibilities for the conservation of this art form viz other artistic media for future generations. The reason for using traditional motifs in textiles and products is to keep our designs or motifs alive. The Indian folk arts with painting play important role in creating new designs. Escalating demands of consumers requires modification in the fashion industry with respect to design, color, style and technique. The aim of this project is to preserve the originality of the art form.
