This handmade wooden candy jar is developed by our craftsman and made it exceptional by applying technique of chitar Kari.

The word " Lacca" or Laksha" in different language is significantly derived from the Persian word "Lac" or Hindi "Lakh" meaning” A hundred thousand". It indicates the multitudes of insects required to produce "Lac"

Lac is an animal resin applied either in the dry state and distributed by the heat generated by friction. Lacquer, on the other hand, is a vegetable oleo-resin which naturally exists in liquid form and is either directly applied by a brush or is thickened by adding a plastic material that may be molded and, while still liquid, can be applied to surface in bas-relief ornamentation.

In local terminology engraving work is known as chitar-kari. For this work, a shaped wooden article is fixed on a wooden lathe. After switching on the lathe, the lac colors are applied to the article in such a sequence that the light color is coated first, and then a little darker color is coated on it, followed by a darker one, and so on. In this way, gradually, thick layers of different colors, on eon the other, are coated on the article. After leveling the color surface with a tool, the article is disengaged from the lathe. After this, with the sharp tip of chitran (chisel), scratching or incising is done. The desired color is thus imparted to the flowers by lightly scratching and removing the upper layers of color by a chisel. In this way chitra-kari is done on the whole article, in which beautifully made flowers of various colors are visible.
