Materials and Craftsmanship: The Process of Crafting Inlay Coffee Tables 

The inlay work is an epitome of skilled craftsmanship and artistry. To begin with, the furniture designers come up with stunning design ideas and select the premium-quality materials for further steps. Our team works on solid woods, such as teak, oak, mango, and walnut as these woods ensure durability and longevity. After the selection of wood, our artisans create the selected design patterns on the surface of the wood, which is known as carving. With the best carving tools, these patterns are created meticulously. 

Then, we make use of the ethically sourced camel or buffalo bones. First, they are cleaned, sanitised, and then are cut and shaped into delicate pieces. These pieces fit perfectly into the carvings on the wooden surface, creating geometric or floral patterns. The precision and patience required for this intricate work are truly awe-inspiring.
