About the Artwork +

Anjali Vakil portrays captivating artwork that intricately weaves together artistry and storytelling. This artwork draws its inspiration from Keshav Das's poetic anthology "Rasikapriya," which is a fabulous epic of love, longing, jealousy, and bitter regret. The central character, the woman, is portrayed with great depth and emotion. Her distress at being separated from her beloved is palpable in her demeanor. Her downcast eyes mirror her inner turmoil, while the slope of her shoulders conveys the weight of her heartache. The artist has expertly captured the subtle nuances of her emotions, making her a poignant and relatable figure to the viewer. The woman, or friend, is depicted tending to her. The friend's presence signifies the importance of female companionship and support during times of emotional distress. She cares for Proshitabhartrika's legs, symbolising not only physical support but also the emotional and moral support that friends offer in times of need. This artwork serves as a timeless reminder of the power of art to convey profound human emotions and stories through the intricate medium of Chamba Rumal artistry.

Anjali Vakil

Anjali Vakil blue-tick

Join the enchanting world of Anjali Vakil, a Chamba Rumal artist who embarked on her artistic journey after marriage, stepping into a lineage of creative brilliance. Her mother-in-law, the esteemed Lalita Vakil, earned the prestigious 1993 National Award for Chamba Rumal embroidery, setting the stage for Anjali's own creative odyssey. Enthralled by her in-laws' work and the artistry of Chamba Rumal, Anjali decided to dive in. In 2018, her dedication and talent were recognized with a National Award for her outstanding contributions to Chamba Rumal embroidery. Anjali's story unfolds as a delightful fusion of love, art, and tradition. Since her marriage in 2006, she's not only mastered Chamba handkerchief embroidery but expanded its horizons, adding her unique touch to designs that now grace panels, dupattas, shawls, and sarees. Join her on a colorful adventure where family tradition meets innovation, and every stitch tells a story waiting to enchant your senses.

Chamba Rumaal

The Chamba Rumal, a splendid embroidered artistry, once nurtured under the benevolent patronage of Chamba's former rulers, graces occasions like weddings with its intricate motifs in a delightful array of colors. Its earliest incarnation, as crafted by Bebe Nanaki, Guru Nanak's sister in the 16th century, is lovingly preserved in Hoshiarpur's Gurudwara. These handkerchiefs take shape in square and rectangular geometries, woven with fine silks from Punjab and Bengal, and adorned with highly ornate patterns created with untwined silk threads from Sialkot, Amritsar, and Ludhiana. The unique dohara tanka or double satin stitch embroidery technique, borrowed from Kashmir and enriched with Mughal themes inspired by Chamba miniature paintings, brings forth mirror-like designs visible even from a distance.
