THE TIMELESS ART OF MOP INLAY
No animal was harmed in the making of this beautiful piece of home decor :) Inlay is the technique of inserting pieces of contrasting material into depressions made on a base object. The production of MOP inlay furniture and decor items is a three step process and requires up to a month to create. First the fragments of mother of pearl chips are shaped delicately. Then these intricate shapes are affixed onto timber frame in a detailed pattern. After this, resin is filled around the mop shapes to craft the background. The mother of pearl pieces are offset by striking color of the resin to create an exotic looking oriental piece of home decor.
Wipe clean with a dry cotton cloth. Keep protected from water and direct sun light. We also recommend putting a small amount of furniture wax / Vaseline onto your inlay piece from time to time to ensure that the colored filler does not dry out. Do not serve food directly from the tray surface. Buy your decorative tray with confidence today!
