Meenakari caskets - artful craft from Rajasthan/North India

Meenakari is the art, to decorate metal with bright colours. It is a traditional craftsmanship from India that requires a high level of skill and qualification, originating from Rajasthan.

Each piece produced is a small work of art, always involving a team of craftsmen. The production takes place in several steps: First, the artisans with the appropriate tool punch a selected design (flowers, birds, ornaments, ...) in a large-scale piece of white metal. Then the desired colors (enamel dust) are applied to the pattern with a brush and fired. The heat of the kiln melts the colours, so that the coloured liquid can be evenly distributed in the wells. Since the colours are burned individually, this process is repeated more often. Traditional colours such as red, blue, green and white are the most commonly used for Meenakari work. At the end, an already made wood carcass is covered with the finished Meenakari parts.
