eyebrow bindis Manufacturer
Earlier, bindis, placed between the eyebrows, were elaborately painted on. Present day brides indulge in bling with gems replacing these Indian eyebrow bindis. However, most brides prefer to go completely traditional and ethnic with chemical free paints for making elaborate red and white designs on the forehead- albeit dotted with shimmer and gems to go with the current trend.
Majority of the more conscious brides who fear damaging their make-up go in for sticker bindis that are gem encrusted to highlight their overall look. The bindi art varies for brides hailing from different states. For instance, a lot of North Indian brides use bling and usually opt for sticker gems and Indian eyebrow bindis with a large bindi forming the center. However, the Bengali brides go for the traditional red big bindi in the middle and the traditional red and white dots and embellishments that are painted on, commonly known as chandan. On the other hand, Marathi brides don the traditional crescent shaped bindi in the center and decorate the look with colorful designs and
dots around the eyebrows.
Word bindi originates from Sanskrit bindu, meaning “point, drop, dot or small particle”) is a red dot worn on the centre of the forehead, commonly by Hindu and Jain women. The word Bindu dates back to the hymn of creation known as Nasadiya Sukta in the Rigveda. Bindu is considered the point at which creation begins and may become unity. It is also considered as “the sacred symbol of the cosmos in its un-manifested state”.
Traditionally, the area between the eyebrows (where the bindi is placed) is said to be the sixth chakra, ajna, the seat of “concealed wisdom”. The bindi is said to retain energy and strengthen concentration.The bindi also represents the third eye.The Nasadiya Sukta of the Rig Veda, the earliest known Sanskrit text, mentions the word Bindu.
