Side Plate - Leaf Veins
Originating from the city of Shah Rukn-e-Alam, these ceramic pieces are individually handcrafted and meticulously painted using the centuries-old kashkari techniques in shades of blue and turquoise. The patterns are hand-drawn on Multani red and white clay, painted by talented artists, and then fired in traditional ovens to create stunning yet practical and durable ceramics for the modern home and kitchen. They evoke memories of ancient mosques and shrines and hark back to an age when craft and its makers were synonymous with beauty, harmony and creativity. And when traditional pottery meets contemporary design under the Polly label, that’s when the real magic happens! Handmade craft is valued and promoted and skilled artisans can access sustainable livelihoods to grow their businesses.
