Walnut wood is regarded as the finest quality of wood in Kashmir, which is carved into intricate designs. But, the number of skilled artists who carve it has reduced to a great extent.

“It was a good trade earlier, now there is nothing left of it. It didn’t earn us much, but at least our life was running smoothly earlier,” says Ali Mohammed, a master carver.

The process of making walnut wood products takes a lot of grinding. The wood used for this carving can be from the root or trunk of the tree. After the trees are harvested, the planks are kept for seasoning for more than a year.
