Completely hand-carved beauties of furniture in teakwood and silver, a treasure trove in its own right, is on display at Taj Khazana, the 25 year old boutique at Taj Banjara that is part of a 6-store chain.
These furniture pieces are replicas of highly valued originals and rich statement of class and style. The 99% pure silver is hammered to the desired shapes and finely re-carved with intricate hand engravings on teak surfaces by highly skilled artisans. The craftspersons take pride in working with their hands and their own hand made tools. Everything made is totally machine free.
Furthermore, it is eco-friendly as most of the wood used is over 150 years old, as it is reclaimed from demolished buildings. The fine art of silver furniture making and carving, due to the high cost of production and mechanization, is dying a slow death and Taj endeavours to promote this beautiful art and give back to the artisans in a small way.
The exhibition will be on till the 14th of March at Taj Khazana. Please contact the venue at 2339-9939, 2339-9999, 5566-9999 for further details.
