    In India, handmade brass items are typically produced in the region of Rajasthan. Artisans from this region make uniquely designed figurines, table tops, bowls, plates and wall art. Pure brass usually tarnish quickly once exposed to air. It is therefore important to ensure that the product that you are about to buy has a good coating of lacquer.

    Jute

    Jute is one of the most beautiful and affordable traditional fibres in India.

    Ceramics

    Pottery is one of the world's oldest forms of handicraft.  Ceramics are great for home decor because they are an ideal way to add a touch of colour and texture. The distinctive curves found in wheel threw pottery combine nicely with the straight edges and right angles common in most architectural designs. Accurate placement of a ceramic piece can be achieved in multiple ways both on a large and small scale depending on how much you can trust yourself with the brittle material.

    Vases are particularly ideal ceramics for home décor because they can stand on their own or combined with other ornaments such as flowers. They are also the best choice for covering of large amounts of open space.

  • Trending in Home Decor: White Metal

    India is renowned far and wide for its handicrafts, especially its intricate work with metal. A country that is rich in natural resources is bound to have different types of metal in each region. Diverse culture and a variety of metals only ensure that crafting these metals is an art in itself. One such unique metal is White Metal.

    White metal is an alloy consisting of several metals such as tin, antimony, bismuth, lead and zinc. A mixture of these in different proportions results in a silver coloured alloy that may not be as precious as silver but shines as much, if not more. It is used by artisans in idols, household decor items and even jewellery.

    There are many reasons why artisans use the metal; it is easily mouldable into shapes and yet sturdy. Most importantly the end product looks as grand as would something in bronze or any other metal. Take this figurine of Kamadhenu, the mythological cow with calf, made from white metal. Its exquisite detailing grabs the eye and its sheen makes it stand out like no other. This exclusively crafted item from Poompuhar can grace a home for many generations to come, with its elegance and lustre intact.

    Craftsmen use white metal as the base, over which silver is plated. The metal blends well in this way to produce silver embossed artefacts. With its unquestionable beauty, white metal also lends itself well to jewellery like anklets and earrings.

    While artisans favour white metal for its pliability and durability, there is no doubt that artistic pieces made from this metal are becoming the next big trend in home decor. Poompuhar offers a range of products that are styled in white metal and can be part of your home. Not just idols, very elegant pieces that are contemporary too are made from white metal. Did you know that while white metal is durable; it is also non-toxic, making it useful in a wider range of crafts? That’s the reason this mini trolley bowl set can easily become the center of attention on your dining table or the ideal house-warming gift.

    White metal artefacts are every art lover’s dream; their beauty apart, another reason to favour them is that they are economical too! You don’t need to save up to buy that bronze Nataraja; this white metal figurine is equally beautiful, wallet friendly and yes, lightweight. Poompuhar gives you not one, but three reasons to adorn your homes with more of these white metal handicrafts.
