Madhubani style of paintings derives its name from this region as the style originated here, in the early 17th century. These paintings are made using vegetable dyes, and the canvas is usually cloth or paper. These days, several of the well-known Mahubani paintings are used as motifs on bags, kurtas and other materials produced using the hand-block painting technique.
 
With ethnic-chic being in vogue, such products are all the rage, these days, not just with the Indians, but also in the export market. 
 

 
Art has not always been what we think it is today. An object regarded as Art today may not have been perceived as such when it was first made, nor was the person who made it necessarily regarded as an artist. Both the notion of "art" and the idea of the "artist" are relatively modern terms. Many of the objects we identify as art today were made in times and places when people had no concept of "art" as we understand the term. These objects may have been appreciated in various ways and often admired, but not as "art" in the current sense. Art lacks a satisfactory definition. It is easier to describe it as the way something is done.
 
How do we describe art:
 
“The use of skill and imagination in the creation of aesthetic objects, environments, or experiences
that can be shared with others"
