The Kesuda flower (Butea Monosperma) is said to be between 600 to 1200 million years old. The Kesuda doesn’t blossom, it explodes into bursts of flame-coloured petals which create the image of a massive fire. This is why it is often referred to as the “Flame of the Forest”. Indians consider the Kesuda to be sacred and affectionately refer to it as the “treasure of the gods”. Their pastel blossoms elicit feelings of tranquility and calm, while the vibrantly hued petals transmit confidence and power. Aranyani’s team of embroiderers and painters create each one-of-a-kind Kesuda design in a spirit of this flower’s exquisite, natural beauty.
