Handwoven jute tray/wall hanging, featuring a screen-printed lotus flower design.


Your beautiful handwoven tray, featuring a striking lotus flower design and gold detailing, was crafted entirely by hand in Panipat, Haryana. It was constructed using braids of jute, carefully hand-stitched together, and its rich color tone and intricate patterning were achieved by screen-printing the jute strands. Your tray can be used to serve or display items or, alternatively, as a piece of decorative wall art.

Jute is known in India as “the golden fiber”, on account of its silky golden hue. After being extracted from the stem of the jute plant, which grows in West Bengal, the fiber is spun into thick, strong threads that can be used for multiple purposes. Jute has been cultivated and used for at least 3,000 years and is referenced in the ancient Sanskrit epic the Mahābhārata. During the period of Mughal rule in India, villagers used to wear clothes made of jute and also used the fiber to make ropes and twine. Jute is still widely used across India today, which is a testament to the incredible resilience, versatility, and timelessness of this material.
