Update : 02 Apr 2024, 06:47 PM

Can you imagine celebrating Eid without having henna art on your hands? Shopping centers, fairs, markets, Meena Bazaars, and beauty salons stay open late at the night to accommodate the eager customers who want to have beautiful henna designs applied on their hands and feet from the evening of Chaand Raat until Eid.

The tradition of henna art, or mehendi "utshab," has become an integral part of not only Eid festivities but also other cultural events like Pahela Baishakh and wedding ceremonies.

Young girls, children, and women of all ages ensure to get this done as part of their Eid adornment. Skilled henna artists are abundantly available during these celebratory times, catering to this sub continental cultural tradition.

The henna art tradition is constantly evolving, with intricate and increasingly complex designs being featured in booklets, books, online imagery, and YouTube tutorials, each pattern becoming more elaborate and ornate than the previous ones.

The happiness on women's faces as they look at the beautiful red henna patterns, a natural dye gifted by God, on their hands and sometimes feet, is a tradition deeply rooted in the legacy of their predecessors.


Being an ancient and an integral part of our cultural heritage in Bangladesh, the art of henna has been lovingly preserved and handed down from one generation to the next.

In the Middle East, mehendi was used for henna art and was applied to dye hair, beards, and hands. With Islam's spread across the globe, this idea of using henna for adornment became popular in the Indian subcontinent.

This way, mehendi gained further significance in Bengal, associated with Islamic rituals like weddings and Eid celebrations.

Over time, the use of henna has become a significant part of Bangladeshi and Bengali culture, spanning all religious affiliations, and being worn by all.

For generations, Bangladeshi women have plucked fresh henna leaves from backyard trees, meticulously grinding them into fine pastes to adorn their palms and feet with circular designs.

Over time, these motifs have become increasingly complex, reflecting the artistic expressions and evolving aesthetics of each generation.

Additionally, due to the time-consuming nature of preparing mehendi paste, there was a demand for pre-made henna cones on the market.

However, the rise of commercial mehendi products laced with harmful chemicals threatens to erode this centuries-old tradition. In response, a growing movement of conscious consumers has emerged, reclaiming the need for the authentic and organic essence of this timeless art form.

Because of the growing demand for skin and eco-friendly mehendi products, brands like Organikare have emerged with their own safe formulation.
