Our Himachali boxes are proof that form and function can beautifully align. These beautiful boxes, and their engravings, were unique to the home and family to which they belonged. They’re most commonly found in the northern Indian state of Himachal Pradesh, a neighbour to the Himalayan mountain range. Intoxicating incense smoke would drift amongst the scattered Tibetan temples and Buddhist monasteries and float through the windows of traditional Himachali homes. It is certainly a place with a magical undercurrent, a magic that we believe has been infused into each beautiful piece. Crafted from teak, exquisitely engraved by hand then gently whitewashed, this particular piece is over 80 years old. It has its original hardware intact and a beautiful symmetrical motif carved into its centre.
