It is not only during festivals or ceremonies that Rajasthan looks bright, it is everyday. By the side of the well, at the village haat, weekly market place, at fairs and festivals, in the temple, on the streets, at weddings, rituals and ceremonies, everywhere Rajasthan displays the most brilliant of colors

Blue pottery

An art form, from Persia under the patronage of Maharaja Ram singhji was first introduced in Rajasthan. A new art form with a fascinating recipe of distinctive material like the ground quartz stone. The colour schemes are also peculiar like, blue (oxide of cobalt), Green (oxide of copper) and the external white.
Some of the pottery is semi- translucent and lately is been experimented with other colours such as , yellow, dark blue and brown. The conventional floral or arabesque, hand made patterns and the animal figure patterns are the prominent designs. The various articles shaped out are mostly the traditional ones like surahis or pots of different shapes and size for multiple use, ashtray, tiles, flower pots, lamp shades, jars various accessories or interior items are the forte of this art of pottery.

Textiles:

Bandhani or Bandhej is the name of the tie and dye technique used commonly in the region. Coming from the Hindi word ‘bandhan’ meaning ‘to tie’, this technique has a self explanatory name. The fabric is tied at various places with the help of a thread, in a way that it makes some pattern. After the tying is done, the fabric is dipped in the desired colour. After it is completely dried, the ties are opened and the amazing designs come to reality. The threads prevent the tied area from absorbing the colour and hence the desired pattern is realized.

Carpets and Durries :

The hand knotted woolen carpets of Tonk, Bikaner and Jaipur, are generally based on Persian styles.
