Bengal Patachitra is one of the oldest forms of art and has been in practice for more than 2000 years now, native to the Medinipur region. The use of naturally derived colors on fabric or paper makes this art form eco-friendly. Traditionally, 5 basic colors are used for these paintings, namely, white, yellow, brown, black, and indigo. The brushes that are used by these 'Chitrakaras' or the artisans are also indigenous and are made of the hair of domestic animals.
