As a child I was always very fascinated by the animals and I am probably one of the rare ones who still loves animals. My favourite leisure is to go to jungles, spend time there or go for safari. When I started my brand, I knew I wanted to do something with animals in my designs. So, when I was doing my research on Madhubani paintings, I realised that the most popular motifs they used were fish, elephants and peacocks. 

At Urbane Essence, I combined my love for animals and Madhubani paintings. Me and my artists, we worked with some of the animal designs never used in Madhubani like Zebra, Horse, Squirrel and more. This gave birth to our signature product, Africa-Madhubani fusion saree. This is the rarest moment in the history of Madhubani paintings that people can see a hint of Africa…and it has also become one of our most popular sarees.It is now being considered a true masterpiece that transcends geographical boundaries…

African-Madhubani Fusion symbolises the coming together of different cultures and the celebration of diversity. The saree is a beautiful representation of cross-cultural artistic collaboration. It effortlessly blends tradition with contemporary style, reflecting versatility. This is why this saree can be styled on various occasions ranging from formal events to cultural celebrations. 

Born in the Mithila region of Bihar, Madhubani sarees have gained popularity over the years for their beautiful designs and colours and storytelling abilities. Our signature product, African-Madhubani Fusion Tussar Saree has become a unique variation to the basic Madhubani sarees, highlighting a blend of Indian and African influence.
