This intricate art has been passed down from master craftsman father to child for several generations. With the passage of time, this highly sought-after craft was slowly dying as the world shifted to mass-produced machine-made art. At Mahajati, not only do we intend to preserve this unique art but we also aim to continue to craft this heritage.
Our StoryThe origins of the relationship between the Founder and the Artisans began while searching for an eloquent gift for his mother’s 67th birthday. Being someone who is not easily contented with machine made mass produced gifts, the Founder decided to produce a bespoke wood carving of Ayatul Kursi with a group of Artisans. The design is etched into an impeccable grade of wood. The circular twirling verses written in Islamic calligraphy draw the eyes toward the multiplicity of the design. The intention was to find a gift from a son to his mother, which eventually became Mahajati. A priceless gift from a mother to her son instead.
