What's Henna?

Henna, from the Henna plant, has been used for beautification purposes for centuries and in many cultures, particularly in the Middle East and Far East. The most common use for henna is for dying hair and adorning women's bodies as part of social and holiday celebrations.

The application of Henna designs to the body, called Mehndi, is traditionally practiced all over the world, primarily in South Asia, the Middle East, and North Africa. This custom includes engagements and weddings. Before the wedding, a “Night of Henna” a celebration to bless the bride and groom and the marriage. Much like a bachelorette party the bride's female friends and relatives join her in celebrating, which includes food, drinks, and a lot of dancing. A Mehndi artist decorates the bride, her guests and the groom.

Beautiful and intricate designs are hand painted on to the bride’s hands and feet which often extends up to the palms and legs. The groom’s initials are hidden in the Mehndi and he tries to find them on the wedding night. Grooms often have merely the initials of his bride and himself. Frequently symbols of fertility and love such as peacocks and hearts are integrated into the elaborate paisley designs.


What is Paisley or Paisley Pattern?

The paisley motif originated in Kashmir India. A droplet-shaped vegetable motif and a fertility symbol based on the new shoot of a date palm. The motif is most well known for its use on Kashmiri shawls. The design found its way to England in the 1760s where copies of the original Kashmiri shawls were made in the Scottish weaving centre of Paisley. Hence the use of the Anglo-Saxon term paisley. In India the motif is known as kairy (mango) and buta (floral form) and in Kashmir it is kalanga or kalga. The pattern is sometimes called "Persian pickles" by American traditionalists, especially quilt-makers, or "Welsh pears" in Welsh textiles as far back as 1888.

About our Henna Inspired Candles

As an artist from the 60's I've always loved and doodled the intricate patterns of paisley - so Mehndi, the art of decorating skin with these same happy patterns fascinated me. As a candle maker I'm inspired to incorporate my love of paisley and candles...I hope you enjoy them, too. ~:Diane
