Waraq/Gold and Silver Sheet Making, Rajasthan

Languishing Craft

Waraq has many uses, including its use in Ayurveda and as an edible food embellishment, used to adorn the Indian sweets, making them look rich and opulent. Waraq for textiles is made from a thin fine sheet of 2mm to 25mm thickness of silver or gold, depending upon the quality of waraq required, as the cost and quality of the finish increases as the waraq gets thicker.
