Leather & Wood Brass Scallop Sling Bag
This unique bag made using a combination of wood and leather is not just striking but also extremely functional. The sides of the bag are made from natural wood inlaid with brass wires, creating a beautiful geometric scallop design using a 500-year-old art form called Tarqashi. The rectangular shape allows for plenty of space, lending the bag a formal and elegant look suitable for all occasions. The inside of the bag is lined with soft faux suede and features a card/cash slot. The length of the detachable leather strap can be adjusted to suit your needs.
As the name suggests, Tarqashi is the technique where thin strips of wire or "tar" are engraved on the surface of the wood. The art of Tarqashi involves several processes, each requiring unique skills like preparing the wood, cutting the metal wires, engraving the designs and inlaying it with the wire.
Tarqashi Inlay is believed to have originated from Mainpuri in the northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. The craft was patronised by the royals of Jaipur and Amber.
Today only a handful of artisans are carrying on this craft.
