Mango trees used here are only cut when they are old & go past their fruit bearing stage, since only young mango trees produce the best fruit. This prevents cutting down of other endangered species of hardwood while supporting local mango farmer communities. Mango wood is durable compared to other hardwood. The design on the box is created by a mould maker. A reverse image of the design is transferred onto brass blocks and the brass dies are pressed on to pieces of aluminium with a power press. The embossed pieces are then delicately beaten using a wooden mallet to smooth them out. At the end the aluminium sheets are attached to wooden skeletons to make these art pieces. Saharanpur - where these artifacts have been handcrafted - is famous for manufacturing of wooden & iron furniture and gift items. These are made by artisans that put time into each creation & enjoy creating these wares. The labor and tradition adds extra charm to these products. Handmade gifts are suitable for any occasion.
