Products Inspired By Traditional Henna Styles And Designs April 04, 2016 18:31

One of our specialities at Designsbynn is bridal henna, or mehndi, where we take our inspiration from a variety of sources to create unique designs for brides and members of the wedding party. Some of our designs are inspired by traditional henna styles, while others are taken from patterns we find in nature, or in exotic fabrics. Each design we produce is completely unique.

It's the same for all of our products - Each can be adapted with your own words or colour choices to create something personal to you. Since henna is such an important part of what we do, we decided to incorporate some traditional henna styles into our products, which I hope you will enjoy.

Floral Henna

Floral henna can incorporate different types of flower, and so is a very versatile design. Flowers are also feminine and so this type of henna is popular for both bridal mehndi and various henna painting events. Our Heavy Henna pillar candle incorporates a floral-based henna design.

The teardrop or fig-shaped motif of Paisley print fabric actually originated in Persia (Iran) hundreds of years ago, but gets its name from the city of Paisley in Scotland where it was later mass-produced. Our Orangina pillar candle has a simple paisley design, with additional embellishments.

The inspiration for ivy henna comes from the ivy plant in nature. The way it climbs and twists and weaves lends itself to the types of bridal mehndi we apply up the arms or feet of the bride. Our Ebony And Ivy champagne flutes would be ideal for a celebratory drink at a wedding or engagement party.

Swirls are a very adaptable design, and could represent waves crashing, plant leaves, or whatever your imagination allows. In henna patterns, the swirls can be used as the main part of the design, or can be used as a filler for shapes and embellishments. We used plenty of swirls in our Scarlet Swirls mug.

The mandala is a sacred symbol which represents the universe. It can be seen in many religious buildings and artwork, and more recently this type of design is becoming popular as a design for tattoos. It is a very popular design for bridal henna, because of the spiritual meaning. We incorporated lots of mini-mandalas into our Mandala Madness mug.
