What Does Maheejaa mean ?
The story behind the naming of Maheejaa is deeply rooted in the rich tapestry of cultural and mythological heritage.
The name "Maheejaa" is inspired by the holy figure of Goddess Sita
Goddess Sita is an embodiment of grace, strength, and purity in Indian mythology.
'Mahee' translates to 'earth,' and
'Jaa' means 'daughter,' making
Maheejaa a poignant reference to 'Daughter of the Earth.'
Goddess Sita, known for her unwavering devotion, resilience, and profound connection to the earth, serves as a guiding force for our brand. She represents the nurturing aspect of nature and the enduring strength that lies in gentleness and patience – qualities that resonate deeply with the ethos of Maheejaa. Just as Sita emerged from the earth, our products symbolize the emergence of art from the heart of rural Bengal, bringing with them stories of tradition, skill, and natural beauty.
In choosing the name Maheejaa, we aim to honor and encapsulate the spirit of these rural artisans, predominantly women, who, like Sita, are an embodiment of grace and resilience.
These artisans, through their meticulous craftsmanship in Kantha embroidery, not only keep their heritage alive but also enrich it with their personal narratives, much like how Sita's story has been woven into the cultural fabric of India.
The name Maheejaa is thus a tribute to both the mythological figure of Sita and the real, hardworking women artisans of Bengal. It symbolizes a connection to one’s roots, a respect for tradition, and the nurturing touch that transforms natural materials into works of art. Our brand, Maheejaa, is a celebration of these values, aiming to bring a piece of this rich cultural heritage into the lives of people around the world through our unique range of products.
