The uniqueness of Rogan art is its free-hand creativity. Usually, dark colour clothes are used for Rogan art painting. Prominent colours like red, yellow, white, blue, and green are used to highlight design patterns. Rogan art is very well known for its ‘Tree of Life’ wall art. The peacock, floral and geometrical motifs are used in traditional Rogan painting.
In the olden days, Rogan art was used for decorating sarees, skirts, and headcovers for women. But now it is out of fashion. To keep the centuries-old art Abdul Gafur Khatri and his all-family members started making contemporary products such as bags, quilt covers, wall pieces, kurtas, hand purses, stoles, mobile covers. Till 2010 only men folks were involved in this art, but they started giving training to women. This is a big step taken by the Khatri family. They train more than 100 girls and women. The reason behind this is to sustain and to take Rogan art to as many as possible. Khatri’s also conduct training and workshop for interested people on a prior appointment basis.
Due to pandemic situation, wherein lack of tourists, researchers, and students, it’s difficult for them to survive.
