Adam & Eve picked the olive leaf, and ramps the world over today often regress uncontrollably to that time. But this patti ka kaam (leaf work), is a lot more graceful and a lot less radical looking than you might think.

The art of copying leaf-vein patterns with thread onto cloth, a native craft of Rampur and Aligarh, almost died out by 1993 when it was revived purely through the efforts of one Mukhtar Ali Khan and his wife Farah Khan. Today, after having been showcased in cities like Delhi, Mumbai, Cochin, Calcutta, Pune etc. , it might soon become as much of a trademark craft as Bandhini Prints or Naga Embroidery.

Be the first to discover it in Hyderabad, as Nazneen (Mukhtar and Farah's label) brings its exhibition of patti ka kaam to Gallarie Raphael for three days. Neem, lotus, rose and many other leafs are used as motifs on mal, organza, silk, cotton, khadi, organdy, Maheshwari, Chanderi and many other fabrics. The threadwork is further embellished with crochet work, hand-block prints etc.

Items on sale include men's kurtas (Rs. 250 - Rs. 270), women's salwar suits ( Rs. 550 - Rs. 1,650), furnishings, curtains, bed covers, table covers, cushion covers and much more.

Nazneen has its own retail outlet at 2A, Hauz Khas Village in New Delhi, and can be reached at 011-2653-2233 or 0-9818329362. Almost 300 women from the towns of Rampur and Aligarh work on this art-form to earn their livelihood.
