The Contemporary Parchinkari Art
The original art form involved engraving flowers and leaves and fitting precious stone embellishments around the design with great attention to detail to make the design look complete.
Local artisans from Agra were running out of work because of the intricate, adorning art not being in trend and demand. To overcome this issue, The Handicraft Street has modernized and uplifted the traditional Prachinkari art in a contemporary way and still makes use of the craftsman’s skills.
The Handicraft Street has also added a new variation - Brass, in the elements used in the engraving process which uplifts the traditional art by giving it a contemporary touch as shown in the following pictures.
