India is known for its expertise in handmade things for ages, the most ancient civilization which existed in India, Indus Valley Civilization existed around 3300 BCE to 1300 BCE, the sculptures and utensils found of that era were evidence of the origins of one of the oldest handmade articles of handicraft.
Similarly with the rise of different civilizations and dynasties in India lot of exquisite handicrafts of a different kind were made in India. Among them, one is handicraft furniture, Handicraft Furniture in India is one of the best handmade furniture in the world.
What makes handicraft furniture unique?
Today in the Mechanized world everything is now programmed to be made by machines, modern equipment like CNC are programmed to make computerized and programmed designs fed into the CNC machine and they produce fine finished products which are faultless and exactly to the measurement. But in a way, they look identical, professional, and in symmetry but they tend to be boring after some time as they all are exactly the same.
On the other hand, the handicraft furniture made by hand is unique in the slight variation of the designs due to the lack of absolute precision of the human hand, and every item is unique in the way if also they look exactly the same from distance.
Handicraft furniture is popular in the premium segment
The premium segment consists of a five-star hotel, high-end residential flats, and properties. Handicraft furniture is costly and time-consuming to be made by hand, these days human labor has become very costly and availability is an issue. A skilled craftsman is rarely available who can patiently work in intricate designs and produce high-quality handicraft furniture.
