    So pretty and romantic! An irresistible statement piece for your bedroom, you really cant go wrong with Paloma! Hand made by artisans in India, you're not only purchasing a piece of furniture, but a story and an heirloom in the making. 

    Lovingly inlaid with bone, the intricate detail on this amazing handmade chest of drawers lends a unique and timeless look... 

    Ruby Star Traders has been importing striking bone inlay furniture from India since 1996. Each piece of bone inlay furniture is handmade by traditional artisans in the Udaipur region of India. Every bone shape is carved by hand, and placed carefully on the frame, then the spaces are filled with coloured resin. The resin is mixed by hand, and each batch varies slightly in colour from the last. It takes three craftsmen about three weeks to complete a typical piece of furniture, so stock is definitely limited. There is also a shortage of craftsmen with the skills to make high quality inlay furniture. Many fear the skill may be lost altogether as the younger generation moves on from their traditional artisan roots, to seek work in the big cities. A favourite with stylists and interior designers, Ruby Star Traders' bone inlay furniture has been used in many of Australia's most elegant and exciting houses and features frequently in Australian interior design magazines.

    Whenever possible we hand select products which are handmade by artisans and craftsmen using traditional manufacturing methods, thus providing the dual benefit of creating jobs for people (not machines) and promoting historical and cultural handicraft techniques. Eco Chic is passionate about supporting the use of traditional methods to ensure these age old skills are passed down through the generations and not lost.

    Chest dimensions: 150cm wide x 50cm deep x 85cm high

    Complete the look with the rest of the Paloma range.

    Shipping time approx. 5-7 days if in stock, please email us for current availability.
