What is Sheeshpatti ?
Mathapatti, which used to be the most popular head jewellery so far is now being replaced by Sheeshpatti, which is yet another head jewellery. Unlike the mathapattis, the sheeshpattis don’t grace the hairline. While the drooping dangler comes on the head, the bands lie a few inches behind the hairline.
Sheeshpatti also known as Sheeshphool appear in various designs and patterns. There are sheeshphools that are just a single line hairband, other sheeshphools have a maang tikka attached to the hairband. They can be single line or multi line as well. For a bride, nothing is “Too Much”, hence heavy elaborate sheeshpattis are bride’s favourite choice.
