Product Description

Etched Palm Leaf Gift Box - 5 x 5 x 3 Inch 

Talapattachitra of Odisha are paintings etched on a string of palm leaves with a thin iron tip pen like instrument and thereafter highlighted with an ink made of the  lampblack or kohl. These palm-leaf illustrations tell stories from mythology and events in daily life.

The material is said to have a longer life than our regular paper and therefore these were used to maintain historical recordings. Its an art form that needs skill. Imagine inscribing with a stylus on the uneven surface of the palm leaves that too with a tool that's heavy and a certain amount of pressure required to create a line - let alone text and complex visual depictions of stories of the bygone era.

While, in the modern day context they are used mostly for decoration - we wanted to offer it a utilitarian product too 

These boxes have been made thoughtfully not only for you to enjoy the craftmanship. But to actually put it to use.

These make for great storage concepts and gift boxes
