Bone inlay, also known as intarsia, is a home decor trend in which fragments of bone or shell are adhered to the frame of a furniture piece. It is most commonly used on flat surfaces – such as the sides and tops of tables, or the front of a sideboard.
WHAT IS BONE INLAY MADE FROM ???
The unique art of bone inlay comes exclusively from a place in India called Rajasthan. All products by Mahlia Interiors are made of 100% ethically-sourced camel bone, or mother of pearl shells. Each finished piece of furniture is certified by the auditing agency, WCCB (Wildlife Crime Control Bureau)
IS BONE INLAY ACTUALLY BONE ???
How Ethical is Bone Inlay furniture? Historically ivory was used for inlay but thankfully ethical laws now ensure that modern bone inlay is created from camel bone harvested from desert camels, who have died only of natural causes.
