How I made this rangoli?
Starting with a square like shape in the center. The corners have a petal like twist. Each successive line is larger and pronounces the shape further. Finish with flowers in the four corner-centers.

This picture was taken at a hotel in Jorhat, Upper Assam. The woven hat is embellished with Japi work.
Assamese gold jewellery in Japi style is another piece of art from this part of the country.
And not to miss the three kinds of handmade silk popular with locals: Pat, Eri and Mooga. Eri is the only traditionally vegetarian silk or ahinsa silk. Eri silk is crafted by tribals in Kerala too. Mooga is a natural golden silk which improves with age, and is family legacy.
