Inspired by kernels of maize - the Bhil’s staple crop, Dotted Diamonds features “pointillist” art created by indigenous artist Ramesh Katara and represented by Roots Studio. Each dot joins another in wavelike ripples from one diamond to the next symbolizing stories, prayers, ancestors, memories, and traditions. Muted pinks, orange, and brown are skillfully painted into a symphony of multihued and rhythmic dots. Lined in soft blush and adorned with satin rose gold hardware, this print echoes indigenous creativity from generations past to present.
Proceeds from this collection of heritage art directly benefit the artist and their community. Art with a conscience … The Roots Studio x JuJuBe Collection proudly presents Dotted Diamonds with Soft Clay lining.
How does it work? From the profits provided, an estimated 20% go to the artist while 80% is put into a community fund, where the village prioritizes how it can best be used to benefit their people, such as a dividend for every participating artist.
