About the Craft
Kashmir in India is bestowed with the presence of the majestic Walnut Trees. A fully grown walnut tree reaches a height of about 50 feet. The walnuts from Kashmir are rich and famous worldwide for their taste. Another dimension of a walnut tree is the beautiful carving it hosts.
Kashmiri walnut carving is recognizable because of its color and the tone and its combination with local craftsmanship depicting certain established motifs in a highly intricate and miniaturized form in the traditional established styles. Walnut wood has an inherit sheen which comes on its own when polished with wax. The wood from the root of the tree is almost black and the braches have the highest color. The cost of the wood differs from each part with the food from the root being the most expensive. Walnut wood in natural form as well as in carved form has been used for making elegant furniture and home décor since its inception.
