Bone Inlay Furniture
The intricate and timeless art of bone inlay is a tradition that has been handed down through generations and is practised in Udaipur, Jaipur and Jodhpur regions of Rajasthan in INDIA. The art of bone inlay has its origins in the royal palaces of Rajasthan, where Maharajas commissioned extravagant inlay furniture such as cabinets, chests, tables, chairs and even mirrors.
Inlay is the technique of inserting pieces of contrasting material into depression made on a base object. In bone inlay, the discarded bones of camels, passed away due to natural causes are used. So one can enjoy these fine furniture pieces without feeling guilty because no animal is harmed.
