Home Decor gives a home or a room its character....these can be hand-painted flower vases to more elaborate silver ware and stained glass artistic mirrors.Then there are cute little collectibles made of ceramic, wood and metal that give such a cozy look to any corner that you just love it.

Pottery

Blue pottery is one of the traditional ceramic wares manufactured in the area of Multan, a city rich with cultural heritage of Pakistan. Also known as Kashi work, the art of glazing tiles with intricate patterns of flowers and leaves depicts the influence of Persian culture in this region. These are produced in a wide range - from kitchenware to vases and plant holders. A beautiful range of pottery that adds color and style to any room is available from a peculiarly designed earthen ware to lovely blue ceramic dishes, vases, cookie jars and planters... a hallmark of the famous Multani art.

This art is also practiced in the lower Sindh area, where the famous Hala tiles are made using the same technique as Multani pottery. Hala tiles and plates are famous for their color combinations and designs and have been one of the major charms for visiting tourists to take back home.

While the art as a craft is practiced mostly by men with some women artisans indulging to create livelihood, the use to decorate houses is largely a woman's desire, hence we have  included this craft on our website.

In a monograph titled 'Traditional Pottery Techniques of Pakistan' published under the Smithsonian Contribution to Anthropology Series, Smithsonian Institution, Washington DC there are details of pottery work of this nature from across Pakistan. It is interesting to read the different perspectives related to this art form.

Link to the monograph is as follows:

Colored Glass

These few pieces of blue glass add color to any corner....

There are more vibrant colors such as red, turqoise and green that are used for these lovely decoration pieces to brighten any corner of your house.

Silverware

Depicting the era of the bygone days of the nobility, from small decorative center pieces to delicately carved bowls and candle stands, Silverware pieces add class to any room.

Added to these are a touch of being bejeweled with lapis lazuli. Various sized jewelry boxes and napkin stands take you back to the days of the Nawabs and Maharajahs.

Silverware is made in the costly sterling silver as well as German silver which is a bit more affordable yet has the same elegance as that of sterling silver.
