Design Gejje Vastra

As a child, I grew up watching both my Mysore Ajji and Bangalore Ajji making gejje vastra. While Mysore Ajji made the traditional ones, Bangalore Ajji made so many designs with gejje vastra that my mother used them for big festivals like Shree Varamaha Lakshmi Habba, Gowri Habba, Ganesha festival, Dasara festival.

However, this year I was determined to start and at least try a simple design for adorning Lord Ganapathi with some fancy Gejje Vastra and tried this.

It is very simple, I took three gejje vastras, and braided them and put stickers in between.

It looked just divine on the Lord. However, once we put all flowers and garike it was hard to see the same.

So, next year if you need an idea, this can help you get started. Simple, easy and looks fancy.

  3. Nice to hear about how your grandmothers used to make and how you make gajje vastras. It reminds me of how my mother used to make gajje vastras. Your posts bring nostalgic memories of Maadhwaa traditions followed in those days. Best wishes, Madam.
