The Indus Valley Civilization has left the country with great contributions in the area of both ethnic and cultural aspects. One such influence in the field of stonework and artwork is the skill of the Dhokra casting. Reigning from the Harappan culture, this art dates back 5000 years by the stunning metalsmiths work and has survived the test of time. Dusting the soils of West Bengal, Bihar and Orissa, the indigenous production methods of the tribals' and the nomadic craftsmen reflects the inherent expression of their simplicity. As intricate and detailed as the art form is, its place of production is usually quite humble, and it is the inherited talent, dedicated efforts and the sheer simplicity of the artisans that have kept the rustic art alive so far.
Inspired by the rich and unheard culture of the Dhokra tribes from the Indus, "The Relics of Mohenjo-Daro" is one such marvel range of exclusive handcrafted accessories brought to you Indies, without any filters! The jewellery depicts grace and the rich history of the civilization and the prowess of the professional artisans in their work. The rustic vintage embellishments of necklace and earrings of great beauty depicting humans in a circle of tight embrace and brass are transformed into the poetry called Dhokra. These phenomenal accessories are exemplary choices to be used during office parties, outings, festive occasions or even daily for giving a bohemian touch to any look with the combination of vivid and vibrant colours that they exhibit and are created using a technique called the "lost wax technique" which in artistic terms is called the "Cire Perdue". The traditional yet chic design is like wine, which is worth, both the work and the wait.

MANUFACTURING PROCESSThe artisan forms a clay core which is roughly the shape of the final cast image. This process defines what the final product will be. Next step is covering the clay core with a layer of wax which is composed of ingredients such as pure beeswax. When the wax solidifies, the artisan starts with shaping and carving the mould in all of its finer details of designs and decorations. Again, a layer of clay is applied to it which takes the negative form of the wax. Drain ducts are left for the wax, which melts away when the clay is cooked which shows the impeccable design and process of Dhokra art. The wax is then replaced with Brass which hardens between the core and the inner surface of the mould. The metal takes the same shape as the wax. Here, the manufacturing process does not stop here, the artisans give their final touches and polish as desired.
It was on the advice of our spiritual guru that we (my wife and I) went looking for an aroma diffuser. “Diffusing essential oil helps reduce your stress and anxiety, it boosts the immune system apart from improving respiratory health and boosting memory as well as concentration,” Major (retd) Dalbir Singh who is a Reiki grandmaster, Gaidon master and a practicing master of 18 other spiritual sciences had told us.
The search, however, wasn’t as easy as we had thought it would be. With a trip to a marketplace, mall or state emporia where one could be spoilt for choice ruled out due to Covid-19, we turned our attention on the ever-dependent and ever-friendly google. And found that we were wrong. The search engine gave us loads and tonnes of options, almost all of them in ceramic – in different sizes, designs and colours. We kept website-hopping, shortlisting a few on the way.
The ones we finalised were based on how the aroma diffuser would merge with our study where we intended keeping it, its design and of course, its price. Not to forget, we didn’t want any run-of-the-mill stuff. After much deliberation and discussions, we ended up finalising the Ceramic Gas Stove Brewing Aroma Diffuser from Studio Pottery (Rs 1199) which we considered ourselves lucky to have come across on https://exclusivelane.com/. This one just looked superb – as a small hearth where you can place a tealight and a beautiful little kettle above it in which one can pour the essential oil. Masterpiece creation! We bought it without even thinking twice.
Must add here for people reading this: The website also sells tableware, drinkware, kitchen storage items, desk accessories, vases, showpieces, idols pots and planters, jewellery, lighting and many other products which you are unlikely to find anywhere – in exclusive and never-seen designs and shapes. This means they are exclusive for you. And more importantly, these products do not burn a hole in your pocket!
Another worth a mention point here is that the website, www.exclusivelane.com, is extremely easy to navigate and buying anything just a cakewalk. You can also zoom into the product to see it closely, from the many options available, including one which compares it with a product you are likely to have at home. In our case, our aroma diffuser was compared with a one litre water bottle. This helps you give an idea on how would it look where you want to place it.

Great customer service by Exclusive lane.
Job Exclusive Lane!
Love the colours and designs of the products in your page.
So appreciate the prompt delivery, prompt response to the problems of receiving broken mugs of the set.
Wish you would take care to check the quality of each piece of the bought set and not send chipped mugs. Out of the set of six, one was broken and one chipped one ( both of which were replaced immediately thanks!) ans one other had rough edges on the mouth of the mug ( which I did it want complain ..)
but i so love this set that I look forward to chai time each day!
This honest critical feedback is only for the betterment of your service and not to dampen your spirits or find fault in any way..
Would definitely want to shop more with you but please do take time to check before sending the products.
Thanks and continue your lovely work.
Its really useful so aesthetically made and perfect size I just bought one more
I liked all your collection s very much especially Mughal collection. All products has got unique design, style and very attractive
Unique products but the hanging portion can be made sturdy
I have been looking for a unique and original key holder for at least a year and was delighted when searching online, to find this one. I work in the Fairtrade industry and was even more delighted to see that they work closely with local artisans who they seem to have a personal relationship with rather than an impersonal corporate one. When I discovered that it was made in India, I got in touch with Exclusive Lane who were very efficient and helpful in replying to my questions and explaining that they could send it to the U.K from India. This is not something I have done before, order an item to be posted all the way from India, but I was delighted to discover that it was possible. It was a much better price doing it this way, than ordering through a private seller in the U.K, even though there was a small cutoms charge to pay (which was easy to do). The product arrived about a 7-10 days later (I can't quite remember) and it is now up on my wall. As for the product, it is as the picture show. The wooden posts for keys could possibly be slightly thinner to allow easy of getting keys on and off but other than that I am very happy with my purchase and even more with the excellent efficiency and service behind the order itself.
Happy with the product
