With the Tamil diaspora spread all over the world, women make 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 this is where their world's internal and external elements meet, and this entrance or exit needs to be decorated for goodwill. While making Kolam designs is a part of the daily chores, and it marks the beginning of a day in the household, you will often see more complex Kolam designs with various colours in them. These are made for special or auspicious occasions, like festivals and weddings. A Tamil wedding is very different from a North Indian wedding, especially for a Tamil Brahmin wedding. Kolangal designs are an integral part of the decorations. Apart from their cultural value, they also add 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.

Kolam designs are slightly different from rangoli designs as they are generally more geometric and well-defined than rangoli. There is no limit to your creativity while making new rangoli Kolangal designs, but they require a lot of finesse. You can also create an easy kolam design if you like simple and spacious designs for your daily rituals.

What is Kolam Design?

What is Kolam Design?

Kolam or Kolangal is a type of rangoli that originated in Tamil Nadu, anciently known as Tamilakam. It is a geometrical drawing composed of straight lines, circles, dots, curves, and loops drawn in a grid shape. Various names, like Muggu in Telugu and Tharai Aalangaram in Tamil, know Kolam designs. This tradition of drawing beautiful Kolam designs slowly spread to the southern peninsula's neighbouring states: Andhra Pradesh, Kerala, Telangana, Karnataka, and so on.

How to Draw Kolam Design?

Kolam designs typically use rice powder or white powders like chalk or chalk powder, white stone dust, synthetic colours, etc. You will also find using turmeric powder sometimes to add colour to these simple Kolam designs. Kolams are believed to bring prosperity and ward off evil spirits. Follow this simple step-by-step guide to make a beautiful Kolam Design.

  • Sweep and clean the area where you want to draw the Kolam to ensure it’s smooth and debris-free.
  • Use dots as a guide to create symmetrical designs. Begin by drawing a grid of dots using your fingertips or a small stick dipped in rice flour.
  • The number of dots and the grid size depend on the complexity and size of the Kolam you want to create.
  • Connect the dots to form geometric patterns or intricate designs. Traditionally, Kolams are drawn using curved or straight lines to create patterns like flowers, birds, or other motifs.
  • You can also fill the line with different colours or experiment with different patterns, such as concentric circles, intertwined lines, or floral motifs.
  • Once the main design is complete, enhance the Kolam by adding details or borders using coloured powders or chalks.

Although Kolam designs primarily involve geometric patterns, loops, arcs and circles, using bold roses or lotuses is also quite common in Kolam images. For example, in Arabic Mehndi designs, some artists use large roses with leaves as their rangoli pattern. With a little outline and stencils, you too can attempt to achieve 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.

One of the simple hacks to achieve such breathtaking Kolam images is using household stuff such as stencils, like stainless steel plates, spoons, forks, container covers, following the floor tiles, etc. If you think making circular patterns is tougher, use other geometric shapes like squares or triangles. Another way to get around making a rangoli is using 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.
