This vintage piece was traditionally used for making roti, an indian flatbread also known as chapatti.
Ten people are involved in this furniture recycling business based in Jodhpur, Rajasthan. Employees receive the benefit of a Provident Fund pension scheme and ESIC (medical) insurance stipulated by the government, as well as performance-based bonuses and incentives. The company supports an organisation called TPRF (www.tprf.org - who’s mission is to address the fundamental human needs of food, water and peace sadly missing from many lives). They are also proud to provide local employment that not only helps to keep families together, but also preserve many dying crafts and traditions.
So what could this lovely piece be used for in a contemporary home? A plant stand? For serving chunky bread on with a pretty napkin? An oversized coaster maybe? Something art-based? Send us your pics or tag us in Instagram if you can think of a novel use it for. It’s definitely one of those things that you buy because you love it and then make room in your home for it afterwards!
