India has a long-established connection with wooden artefacts and kitchenware. In ancient times, when wood was the only means, rustic plates, cups, bowls and everything else from paintings and artefacts were carved in wood.
Indian mythology is filled with stories of people using wooden utensils. Vedas also have a mention of ‘lakdi ke gharonde’ at many places. Even, Gods are believed to have worn khadaus or wooden chappals.
Fast forward to the new age, our own Mahatma Gandhi or beloved Bapu loved wearing these slippers. Need we say more?
It is believed in the Hindu religion that wood is the purest form available on earth and can be used to make offerings to Gods, eat, drink or decorate. Even science believes that wood spreads positive vibes. Not to mention the aesthetic appeal and charm a wooden chandelier brings!
At India Imprints, we love to preserve this tradition with wooden pottery, tea holders, wall-hangings and more.
