Diwali at Blinds 2go

November 2nd, 2013 in All About Blinds

This Sunday marks the Hindu celebration of Diwali, the festival of lights. Literally translated (from a contraction of deepavali), Diwali means ‘row of lamps’ and marks five days of celebration in which Hindus perform many rituals and light small clay lamps to signify the triumph of good over evil.

They also decorate their homes with brightly coloured ‘Rangoli’ folk art from India. Featuring a whole spectrum of colours, the designs are passed down through the generations and are thought to bring good luck.

At Blinds 2go, we’re fairly new to the Diwali game and we didn’t have any Hindi ancestors to inspire us. However, what we did have was lots of experience of making brightly coloured blinds, so to join in the festivities we put together a rainbow coloured spectrum of vertical blinds. And here it is. Happy Diwali everyone!

I'm the newest member of the blinds 2go blog team. I've been really enjoying researching and hunting some amazing things to post! I love books (read The Road by Cormac McCarthy, you won't regret it!), pigs (oink oink!) and drinking tea (who doesn't?!). The quirky things in life make me happy and I really love everything about the colour red.
