Decorated Hand-mehndi design




Decorated Hand-mehndi design





Mehndi (or Hina) is the application of henna (Hindustani: ????- ???- urdu) as a temporary form of skin decoration, most popular in South Asia, the Middle East, North Africa and Somaliland as well as expatriate communities from these areas. It is typically employed for special occasions, particularly weddings. It is usually drawn on the hands and feet, where the color will be darkest because the skin contains higher levels of keratin, with which the colorant of henna, lawsone, enters a permanent bind.

Henna paste is usually applied to the skin using a plastic cone or a paint brush, but sometimes a small metal-tipped jacquard bottle used for silk painting (a jac bottle) is used. The painted area is then wrapped with tissue, plastic, or medical tape to lock in body heat, creating a more intense color on the skin. The wrap is worn overnight and then removed. The final color is reddish brown and can last anywhere from two weeks to several months depending on the quality of the paste.

The patterns of mehndi are typically quite intricate and predominantly applied to brides before wedding ceremonies. However, traditions in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sudan sometimes expect bridegrooms to be painted as well. In Rajasthan (north-west India), where mehndi is a very ancient folkart, the grooms are given designs that are often as elaborate as those for brides. In Kerala (south India), henna is known as mylanchi and is commonly used by the Mappila (Muslim) community during weddings and festivals.

In Arabic and Persian speaking countries, such as Morocco, it is done for any special occasion. It is done during the seventh month of pregnancy, after having the baby, weddings, engagements, family get-togethers, as well as many other reasons to simply celebrate an event.

Mehndi decorations became fashionable in the West in the late 1990s, where they are sometimes called "henna tattoos". This term isn't accurate, because tattoos are defined as permanent surgical insertion of pigments underneath the skin, as opposed to pigments resting on the surface.

2010 JHC Preservation Luncheon #7





Instead of cut flowers, table centerpieces were creative towers of holiday cupcakes with gold and silver leaf decorated buttercream.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
The historic Westchester Country Club in Rye, NY designed by famed architects Warren & Wetmore in the 1920s was the site of the Jay Heritage Center's 2010 Preservation Luncheon, on December 8. Renowned designer, and JHC Advisory Board member, Alexa Hampton was the featured speaker. She is the author of the new book "Alexa Hampton: The Language of Interior Design" and captivated her audience with an engaging and colorful swathe of knowledgeable designing tips and illustrations of her work. More than 200 guests attended the event which raised over $100,000 in proceeds to benefit JHC's programs in American History, Architecture, Landscape Conservation and Environmental Stewardship.

The Luncheon was chaired by Suzanne Clary, Joan Mark, Rachel Breinin and Lauren Spelman all of Rye. A live auction featured couture jewelry from MISH and unique cultural experiences including private tours of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, picnics at Fort Jay on Governors Island and behind the scenes peeks at the Winter Antiques Show.

Guests also applauded Westchester Country Club historian, Sheila Enos who was honored for her work to preserve the photographic images and stories of generations of Rye and Harrison residents.

Alexa Hampton, president of Mark Hampton, LLC, since 1998, has annually been listed in Architectural Digest and House Beautiful as one of the country’s top interior designers. She is also the designer of a growing stable of eponymous licensed products for the home, including furniture, fabrics, carpets, and lighting. She lives in New York City with her husband and children. As an Advisory Board member, she is actively engaged in helping to restore the Jay House Dining Room in time for the JHC's spring exhibit on Slavery and the Civil War.
