Description

In Jaipur, there is a bustling neighborhood called Mohalla Pannigaran which translates to a community of Pannigars, the makers of foil or panni. Here one finds the most skilled of the varqsaaz (craftsmen) who produce gold and silver leaf or varq, which is widely used to decorate our traditional sweets and medication in Jaipur, and in decor and art globally. As you walk through this neighborhood, you see craftsmen delicately beat the precious metals into sheets thinner than a strand of human hair! The trail further introduces you to some of the last few traditional practitioners of this craft which goes back many generations, who work with ancient tools and techniques despite increased mechanization and industrialization.
