Heritage of the Himalayas

Aipan is an established ritualistic folk art originating from Kumaon in the Indian Himalayas. The art which was once done mainly during special occasions, household ceremonies and rituals, has now been contemporised by modern Aipan artists into daily use and luxury products.

The actual art was done with a white paste made of rice flour on empty, brick-red walls. At present, though, a variety of colours and pigments are used to represent the art through various media - both utilitarian and luxury.
