Almirahs, both big and small, were a staple piece in almost all Indian households. They were used to store salt and grain in the kitchen, or saris, quilts and other textiles in living spaces and bedrooms. Salvaged from Gujarat, this 80-year-old teak almirah was once used to store clothing and brightly coloured kantha. It has its original brass hardware intact and has since been polished in a natural wax to enhance the dark, rich tones of the timber. We think it would make a lovely cabinet for a living space, with room for both storage and a curated display.
