We know you love our wooden tableware collections - the Floral Collection, Indigo Collection, Festive Collection, and more. Ever wondered how these are made? Read on to find out!

The wood used is generally mango or acacia wood. The wood once cut, is treated and is handcrafted into the required shapes. Bowls, platters, boxes are all hand carved from this wood after it is treated.

After the basic shape is made, it goes through a 'finishing' process that includes shaping it to the exact size needed, smoothing and polishing it.

Next, the enamel design is laid out on the product. While the enamel is still wet, is the time to place an inlay (For example a laser-cut brass motif).

The enameled product is then kept to dry - this can take from a few hours to a few days depending on the weather as these products need natural drying only. There's a rigorous quality check after each step. Once the product is completely dry, it is treated with a food-safe lacquer and is ready to go.

Each piece is handcrafted and woodwork is a skill passed down from one generation to the next.
