Indigenous traditional trousseau from Bihar: A revival through “Design Intervention”

Author(s): Archana Ranjan and Dr. Nilamani Kumar
Abstract:
Once upon a time, Bihar had indigenous traditional trousseaus, but only a few have stood the test of time. One of these trousseaus, “Bharua Qaseeda Kurti” has gone completely extinct or forgotten by the people. Only to be found in museums or lying somewhere in someone’s house. It is beautiful, vibrant, and full of a high level of craftsmanship and artistry. Such art should be revived, preserved, promoted, and passed on to the next generation.
This trousseau has two attractive features. The first feature is a magnificent hand-embroidered motif.
The second feature is the unique style of sewing, drafting, and cutting techniques. The silhouette of this trousseau is also unique. Through intervention, an attempt has been made to make its second feature, ‘contemporary’, and to know what has been done so far to revive such extinct crafts and what have been the results.
