Bidri

Bidri

The metal craft of Bidri, is named after the Bidar region in north Karnataka. It is said to have been developed between the 13th-15th centuries by Abdullah Bin Kaiser, a Persian craftsman who was exclusively called by the Bahamanas to decorate their courts and palaces.
The intricate silver or copper wire work, engraved and then inlaid on a zinc and copper alloy base only gets its black finish after treating it with a special kind of soil found only in the Bidar region.
This alludes to Bidri receiving the status of a GI (Geographical Indication), implying that it can only be practised in Bidar.
Due to the striking silver inlay work and the extensive processes that go into its making, Bidriware has come to be a prised symbol of wealth.
