Ten-Second Takeaway

Bohra Sisters on Instagram is our latest discovery. The duo draws old traditional Indian prints, from doodling to illustrating by hand, giving us a glimpse into the endearing and everyday lives of their Bohri family.

What’s It About

The Instagram account was started by sisters Sakina {who lives in Toronto} and Zainab {who lives in Udaipur}, who come from the small Dawoodi Bohra community, which is the inspiration for their Instagram handle.

Bohra Sisters mainly do illustrations, doodles, and stop-motion videos for social media branding for companies.

What We Love

The adorable illustrations of their Bohri family. Whether they’re cooking Bohri dabba gosht, or introducing us to their humorous granny fighting off pigeons on the terrace, we find ourselves completely engrossed in their life. They hand-draw these beautiful stories, or use Adobe Software for their stop-motion projects.

Get introduced to their ‘Tota Miya’ {the pet parrot} or Farida Khanum with an ancient gramophone. Also find hand block prints, peacock prints, beautifully done, colourful elephants, and a guide to their Ammi’s Hath Ka Khana in the kitchen.
