Wood Marquetry of Gujarat

Craft Revival Trust

Surat is known for marquetry called sadeli. Thin and long strips of ebony, ivory, red wood, bone, and tin are stuck together to make the design. This craft was at one time used to ornament the doors of palaces and mansions; now it is also used to decorate wooden articles, especially boxes. This is not inlay work, but more in the nature of appliquè and involves no carving.
