Anuradha Arya, Dr. Manisha Gahlot and Dr. Anita Rani
Design has the capability to reinvent itself and hold its significance even in adverse situations related to products and production. The Aipan designs are practiced in Kumaun region of Uttarakhand. The lush green hills have passed on this art from generation to generation but as the times have passed, the art form is slowly losing its significance. On the other side, traditional Indian wear such as saree is also losing their originality and essence with the increasing impact of the fashion trends. Therefore, an attempt was made in the present study for adaptation of Aipan in textiles usage. The detailed information was collected on Aipan design, their motifs and their use. The collection of different forms of Aipan was done for adaptation. The motifs of Aipan design were used for designing of handloom saree.
