In Maithali socio-cultural landscape, learning are drawn from various means including the surroundings - nature in which we live, the food that we take, and the behaviour that we produce. Together these formulate the wellbeing of an individual and the society. From ages, Mithila painting has been a medium to reflect the living of the people. The expression has travelled from ‘Bhhita’ - wall art to extended canvas, class conscious designer cloths and in other household aesthetic items. The House of Mithila is a space that brings various guises to art in verities of other considerable items. It works in collaboration with local artists and women who produce various artifacts for aesthetic consumption
What makes The House of Mithila different and unique?
We are not here with the motive of just doing business, rather we are working on creating a platform and a space where people can experience the Mithila culture.And this does not mean that anyone visiting our store has to buy our product or eat at our restaurant.He/She can simply stroll by and check out some of our literatures and books on Mithila culture that we have placed at our store. Similarly,not many people know about Mithila, their understanding of Mithila is generally Madhesi. And people have their own perspective and mindset about Madhesi and our society has sadly polarized this segment, mainly due to political reasons. So, one of the reasons for establishing The House of Mithila was to minimize this narrow thinking as well as work on creating a sense of unity among the Nepalese too. Hence, the core with which The House of Mithila is working makes this enterprise different and unique.
