Hey ladies! Have you ever heard of OM Home? I just discovered this online shop and enjoyed all the fabric goods in the various colors and patterns offered. Oorabee Ray is a textile designer who owns and runs OM Home. She uses a modernised version of an ancient design method called Alpona. According Oorabee’s site, Alpona is “a common Indian folk art form, primarily deployed in decorating both the inside and outside of homes, temples and sometimes public buildings on religious and festive occasions“. Typically, the ancient motifs were made with rice poweder, a type of dye such as vegetable, and a cloth wick. Today, her motif’s are incorporated in modern day home textiles offered in her shop.
Currently, OM Home is having an inventory sale with items up to 75%. There are phenomenal deals on bedding, table linens, pillows, and bags – but supply appears to be limited.
