The heritage art of beating malleable copper into sheets and then into different shapes is called Matharkaam (‘beaten work’). It’s this ancient tradition that Coppre has taken and contemporarised into modern day (very drool worthy) collectibles. Through their products, Coppre supports the few who still know this craft .

Hurricane LampThe art is characterised by the rough dots beaten on to it – making for ideal light-catchers and even better art. And it’s this that has been ever-so-subtly used on their packaging. Embossed and printed in copper on a very earthy brown pack.

Bento, traditionally a Japanese convenience meal, is meticulously packed with love (and a lot of times, with elaborate decorations on the food). The food is packed into either a disposable box using eco-friendly materials (like the one featured here) or there are the more expensive ones made of lacquerware. In India, we call it tiffin box.  But sushi in a tiffin box would so not be right, no?
