History

Mother-of-pearl inlaid furniture has a long and prestigious history in Syria, with the pieces made specially for Artiquea requiring five-individual craftsmen and up to eight months of hard work to complete.
The process each material must go through is also very labour intensive, from the cutting, aging and carving of the walnut to the delicate shaping, polishing and inlaying of the mother-of-pearl.

Each element is made by hand in the traditional fashion without the use of power-tools and all materials are sourced in Syria including the sea and river mollusc shells for the mother-of-pearl and the walnut wood for the body of the furniture.

Notes

Mother-of-Pearl inlay for each piece is a unique design and may not necessarily match the picture.
