Handmade in India

Bone inlay is a technique that involves fixing intricate, hand carved pieces of camel bone and mother-of-pearl into a wooden frame, that is then filled with a colored resin. It derives from the ancient craft of intarsia, which the Egyptians used to decorate wood as far back as 3000 years ago. In the past, bone and mother-of-pearl inlay was an artisan craft, afforded only by the wealthy. Today, advances in manufacturing have meant that bone inlay furniture is much easier to make, and therefore can be affordable. However, handmade bone inlay antiques and artisan pieces are still popular.

This side table is the perfect combination of a traditional ancient technique and modern styling. This table will look perfect in the living room as side table or in the bedroom as bedside table.
