Mehendi is a sanctified dye and one of the most important 16 shringars. Owing to the huge potential and numerous designs that can be fashioned with it, the henna paste has always encouraged mehndi artists to stab the most intricate tapestries.

Henna is prominently used in various parts of the world to beautify hands and feet however the designs vary evidently. From the geometric Moroccan patterns to the floral Arabian artwork, the dye doesn’t disappoint anyone. And it is no surprise that mehndi designs have evolved over time giving rise to newer forms and the incorporation of glitters and other adornments. And ofcourse the modern brides who are always scavenging for the “different” accelerate the evolvement process.
