Sankheda
While many communities revolving around Indian traditional craft have withered, the Kharadi community with its lacquered woodwork technique has in fact prospered under the modern process of markets and products. The finely applied and polished lattice work (lacquer) turns to beautiful browns and oranges after heating; it is called sankheda after its location and it is known internationally in the craft world. Take a bus or a train to reach the town and watch the artists at work or buy their craft.
