Laia Foundation at Festa del Badiu

Laia Foundation took part once more in Badalona’s Festa del Badiu on 7th May, as part of their popular May festivities.

The main attraction of our stall is Mehendi, a type of body decoration originating in ancient India. The designs are painted on the body by using a paste made from dry leaf powder from the henna plant. Despite its ancient origin, Mehendi continues to be a popular form of body art amongst women in the Indian subcontinent.
