Jaandi is about a 300-year old craft, traditionally used to make swinging cradles (called Hindoro in Sindhi). The craft is known for its durability, delicacy and natural beauty. As the minute, coloured spots resemble tiny beads, this jandi work is called ‘jahawardar jandi’. In recent times, the craft is being employed to create other products as well, which are more apt for modern spaces with a touch of tradition, such as these vases.
As an ancestral art, it is passed down generation, and artisans use various handmade tools, such as pango (a piece cut from a frond for levelling colour on the wooden piece), rachi, palkar and khurchan (chisel). A specific type of wood called bahan is used, as it is light, dry, absorbs and retains colour well, and repels woodworms. Colours for it are made by local women, and mostly use natural ingredients.
The vase has a unique opening, and can hold a single stem - dried or artificial.
