Home Furnishings Lending a Touch of Class!
Invariably the smallest object lying on any dining table is the coaster. But even the coasters when kept in a tasteful manner can enhance the overall look of the dining spread and suddenly render the food far more enticing than it actually is. It is heartening to note that there is a sumptuous fare in the handicraft market place when it comes to various home furnishing products. Rather, you can say there is an abundance of it.
Coasters, tissue boxes, table mats, bed sheets, quilts, rugs & carpets and what not…
Besides coasters, you have tissue boxes and table mats as the other major table décor items. Again, you have a surfeit of choices that are being made available to you by the different states. Each of them have extended their share of this very important category of handcrafted products and thereby have added immensely to the overall value.
Of course, the mainstay of handcrafted home furnishings remain the exquisitely embroidered bed sheets, cushion and pillow covers, modha covers, quilts, rugs & carpets, etc. The kind and level of embroidery work, patch work and the accompanying embellishments such as mirror work, use of tassels, etc that you get to see in them is something that is simply indescribable. You have to see them to believe what we are conveying here.
The rugs & carpets handtufted and crafted by the highly skilled artisans of Mirzapur district of Uttar Pradesh are globally acknowledged for the sheer level of handcraft expressed on each and every rug or carpet. Similarly the handmade quilts with Batik paintings done on them are also a big, big hit.
Rajasthan, Bihar, UP, Gujarat, West Bengal are all into it!
Isn’t the choice really great. You have splendidly crafted bed sheets from the Kutch region, and cushion and pillow covers from Jammu & Kashmir, Gujarat , modha covers, again from Gujarat and Rajasthan , rugs & carpets from Mirzapur in Uttar Pradesh, etc.
The choices does not cease here. You then have very cute looking wooden coasters crafted by the god gifted craftspersons of Rajasthan. Within this Western state, Jaipur the capital city is an important centre.
This superior level of craft is readily evident in the tissue boxes made of lac and the cute looking and at the same time highly sophisticated looking table mats made of coral as well. Th e lac made boxes are from the north eastern state of Bihar while the coral made handcraft products are from the eastern state of West Bengal.
