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 patronized by the royals of Jaipur and Amber.
Today only a handful of artisans are carrying on this craft. Peepul Tree is working closely with these artisans to help revive this art form and take their story to the world.
