Category - Kerala 365

Nettur Petti


Named after the place of its origin, Nettur, a village near Kozhikode the Nettur Petti is a traditional jewellery box of Kerala; a souvenir much admired. Traditionally used by the women of aristocratic families this jewel box is an adept mix of aesthetics and efficacy.

A work of art in itself, it is the result of the skilful labour of many. Each stage of this production demands absolute dedication and dexterity. Many works are performed by hand: the hinges and nails are crafted by hand.  The boxes are fashioned out of rosewood and other country woods.  Once the woodworks are over the decorative polished brass elements are affixed onto it.
