Kolam is a type of rangoli that originated in the state of Tamil Nadu, anciently known as Tamilakam. It is basically a geometrical drawing composed of straight lines, circles, dots, curves and loops that are drawn in the shape of a grid. Kolam designs are also known by a variety of names like Muggu in Telugu, Tharai Aalangaram in Tamil. This tradition of drawing beautiful Kolam designs slowly spread out to the neighbouring states in the Southern peninsula - Andhra Pradesh, Kerala, Telangana, Karnataka and so on. With the Tamil diaspora being spread all over the world, one can find the women making Kolam designs in various countries like Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, etc. Every morning, the women in these south Indian households wake up early to make simple Kolam designs on the threshold of their homes. They believe that this is where the internal and external elements of their world meet and this entrance/exit need to be decorated for goodwill. Kolam designs are typically made using rice powder or white powders like chalk/chalk powder, white stone dust, synthetic colours and so on too. You will also find the use of turmeric powder sometimes to add some colours in these simple Kolam designs.

While making Kolam designs is a part of the daily chores and it marks the beginning of a day in the household, quite often you will see more complex Kolam designs with a variety of colours in them.

Kolangal designs are an integral part of the decorations. Apart from their cultural value, it also adds character to the venue. During the wedding festivities, all the Kolam experts in the family come together and make very elaborate and intricate Kolam designs.

There is no limit to your creativity while making new rangoli Kolangal designs, but they do require a lot of finesse. You can also make an easy kolam design if you like simple and spacious Kolam designs for your daily rituals.

Although Kolam designs mostly involve geometric patterns, loops, arcs and circles, using bold roses or lotuses is also quite common in Kolam images. Just like in Arabic Mehndi designs some artists use large roses with leaves as their rangoli pattern. With a little outline and the use of stencils, you too can make an attempt on achieving a rose rangoli on your next celebration or any other event at home. You could also decorate it with small hand-painted diyas or earthen lamps.

Mix of patterns

A colourful Kolam with bold patterns and designs sets the stage for a fun and vibrant wedding. If you love all things bright and beautiful, why stick when to just one colour palette in your Kolam design when you can have many.

One of the simple hacks to achieve such breathtaking Kolam images is the use of household stuff as stencils. Like stainless steel plates, spoons, forks, container covers, following the floor tiles etc. If you think making circular patterns are tougher, go for other geometric shapes like squares or triangles. Another way to get around making a rangoli is the use of Pulli Kolam patterns where you connect the dots and make small simple shapes. Of course, there are complicated designs too, but you still can attempt to make one with the help of these dots.
