SEASON'S GREETINGS!

EMBOSSED LEATHER - SHANTINIKETAN

The art of leather embossing in Bengal goes back to 1940’s. The design is embossed on the vegetable tanned goat skin using a ball press machine. The pattern is then painted by hand. The leather is polished with a stone to make it soft and malleable. It is finally transformed into bags, purses, money boxes and much more.

STATIONARY

Wood carving & painting is an ancient craft of Varanasi. Pencils are bought from market and the covers are carved with animal/bird heads, in eucalyptus wood. Lead free paints are used and after painting a clear varnish/ touchwood is used for a smooth surface and to protect the paintings.
