Turning the old into new


Last Updated on November 24, 2022 by Swadesi

Bensal Arts Exports believes that ‘old is gold’. It collects old unused household items from every corner of the country and re-fashions these into products for moder day use – be it for decorative purposes or reuse. While modern gadgets, electronic or otherwise – may 22ahave made these redundant, their value has not diminished.

The company also uses techniques for making products look like antiques. This is done especially with wooden statues manufactured in many parts of the country. The company avers that these are in good demand in five-star hotels and the homes of the rich and famous. Western buyers too, insist on such products. The large doors from old houses (havelis) that are being demolished, on refurbishing, are in demand mostly for decorative purposes from hotels.

Often old doors or windows which may not be in good condition are remodeled into centre or side tables retaining their antique looks. It is a question of using creativity in re-fashioning these products and put into use again.
