During The Madras Week, Design Foundry Has Made Artfully Illustrated Postcards That Roots The City’s Locality Names To Its Native Plants And Trees.

CHENNAI, INDIA – At Design Foundry®, we celebrate Madras Week by etching out our rich green history with The Madras Toponymy Postcards. We have created artistically illustrated postcards and a limited edition of posters to honour our city’s legacy of nurturing nature.

Speaking on the Madras Toponymy Postcards Mukund Venkatraman, Chief at Design Foundry® said, “We celebrate the monuments, the festivals, the beaches of Chennai. But the name of places like Mangadu, Poonamallee, Triplicane is a testament that we deeply valued the nature surrounding us. The Madras Toponymy postcards look back at the cultural significance of nature we celebrate the Madras Week.”

The name of the postcards pays an ode to the early toponymists who were storytellers and poets who waxed eloquently about the beauty of a place, wrote about its soul through the flora and fauna that thrived there. They crafted poems and built myths around the fruits and flowers that the land bore. In Chennai, too, this tradition lives on through the charming names of its many villages and streets. The city’s places illustrated include Pelathope, Mangadu, Mambalam, Triplicane, Teynampet, Purasawalkam, Vepery, Koyyathoppu, Pulianthope, Panayur, Athipet, Poonamallee, Perambur, Alandur, Thiruvalangadu, Iluppai Thoppu, Irumbuliyur, Thiruverkadu and Thirumullaivoyal.

You can pre-order the Madras Toponymy postcards on Instagram @indesignfoundry and join us as we revel under the exuberant charm of our past. Each set of postcards contains eight cards with unique illustrations depicting each place and costs INR 500.
