These bags are hand painted by an indigenous tribe of The Nilgiris – the Kurumbas. Their names is said to be derived from the Tamil word for mischief “Kurumbu”. Historically they played the role of sorcerers and priests not only for their own tribe but also for other Nilgiri tribes but, today the closest they come to sorcery is in their fine knowledge of medicinal plants. Their art form is believed to be more than 3000 yrs old but, is in desperate need of revival. In these paintings, they depict scenes from their daily life.
