A marriage of ancient crafts imbues these surfaces with a noble elegance.
This is the first of our collections to blend two ancient crafts from India: Bidri, where sheets of silver are inlaid with thin metal strands, and Parchin Kari, where semi-precious stones are inlaid into a stone base.
Every piece is made by meticulously embedding brass or stainless steel into natural stone, then honing the two materials until they appear to form a single seamless whole. Naturally, the technique demands expert craftsmanship and a deep understanding of the materials used.
The name Armatura means “Armour” in Italian, and indeed each sublime pattern – whether formed of straight lines or graceful curves – evokes the courtly refinement of a bygone age.
