I’m at last so happy to present you my first pattern collection with Indian theme! From the time I came back I dived in to working and that’s why it took me so long to prepare it. Another reason though was that I found a completely new world of patterns when I started my research. Because of that I decided to make 3 different posts with Indian themed patterns, separated by subject, to be possible to unwind this amazing new world. I hope you’ll be on board with this and enjoy them as I did!
This group of patterns is about nature of India: the magical jungle, animals that impressed me and delicious fruits!

So we started with the jungle…so many trees and plants, India is very rich in nature! Palm trees, teak forests and a bunch of so many others I don’t know!
Of course, among them, in the jungle but not only you meet a lot of exotic (for us) animals. Tigers, crocodiles, a lot of monkeys, peacocks, wild boar, deer etc…We saw all of them there but here I have only some.
Then, I couldn’t miss the elephants! They deserve a group by themselves because I could say it’s the 2nd national animal of India, you see it everywhere! It’s supposed to bring you luck and depending on the elephant’s trunk direction it’s a blessing or welcoming message etc. Don’t forget that they have also a god with elephant’s figure, Ganesh, but this will follow on the second part!

However, the most characteristic animal of India is of course the holy cow. Along with monkeys are the most common animals you run into your stay there. They are almost everywhere!! At first you feel quite surprised but after some days MAYBE you stop photographing them!
For closure I have some yummy fruits for you! Mangos, pineapples, papayas, coconuts and bananas are only some of them. Especially when we visited India it was mango season and there were selling tents every 10m on the roads. Delicious exotic fruits every day, what a treat!
An interesting fact is that coconut is very important to them, almost holy, they offer it to their gods, representing the desirable situation of being a better person. Cracking their ego and finding their inner truth exactly as the sweet, nurturing coconut. ♥
