  • Long Camel Bone Box

    A beautiful long rectangular lidded box crafted from hand shaped panels of camel bone over wood, which is then exquisitely hand painted. 

    The fluted shape of this box's lid demonstrates the skill required to individually shape panels of camel bone to perfectly fit the boxes form. The large and roomy interior is partitioned and is suited to storing jewellery, keys and other items. Or use it simply as a delightful, decorative piece, an exotic homeware to bring a touch of luxury to your home styling.

    Hand made in Rajasthan, India.

    Measurements: length 31 x depth 11 cm, height 10 cm

    Camel bone has been used in India from ancient times for making utility articles as well as decorative ones. It is the ultimate in recycling and eco-responsible craftsmanship as it allows every part of the noble camel to be used after death. The art of camel bone decoration reached its peak in Mogul times, but is now considered a dying art form. Award-winning master craftsman and art conservationist Zakir Hussain has embarked on a crusade to protect the art of camel bone carving and decoration from dying out by instigating a  mentorship program in conjunction with the Indian government.

    Hussain says, “ I have seen a number of crafts at the brink of death in Rajasthan, and I make a point to speak about it during every summit or conference I attend. We have created a number of camel bone artefacts... What we need is a place to exhibit and sell these handicraft forms which is easily accessible to the public, locals and tourists alike.
