Warli paintings are precious tribal art originating in the state of Maharashtra. According to historians, the practice of Warli tradition traces back to the Neolithic period of 2,500 BC to 3,000 BC. Then traveling across borders and territories, it has now emerged as a well-known art with great demand in the international market as well. The Warli tribe is believed to initially express the style over the walls of their houses, then slowly developing it to be executed on paper and cloths.
An artist named Mrs. Vaishali Kawre from Creative Craft, Nagpur, has been practicing Warli paintings since she was 18 years old. The art was taught to her by the tribal people themselves, residing in the Dahanu taluka in the Palghar district of Maharashtra. Mr. Hareshwar Wanga, a master of Warli painting, was her tutor back then. The product range includes greetings, envelopes, bookmarks, cloths, table mats, bedsheets, and sarees carrying Warli designs.
