These handmade Magnolia Floating Flowers are meticulously made from Shola plant using blades and threads.
According to folklore, Lord Shiva was on his way to marry Parvati when he requested Lord Vishwakarma, to make him a white crown for his wedding. When Vishwakarma wasn’t able to make the crown, Shiva created a man, who in turn created an exquisite crown, garland and other ornaments from the soft white core of the shola plant. The man was named “Malakar”.
The Shola craftsmen community mostly belongs to Bengal and is still referred as “Malakar” which means “Makers of Garlands”. Shola is an aquatic plant which has milky white sponge-like stems. The Malakars use tools such as blades and threads and spend months meticulously transforming these stems into beautiful decorative shola pieces.
These handmade Magnolia Floating Flowers reflect the fine craftsmanship of the Malakars.
