The idea of rustic brings with itself a unique connection to our past which is difficult to overlook. With the lightning fast pace at which we live today, there is an increasing trend to separate the home from the not-home by bringing in an element of nature and organic living. Rustic décor serves exactly that purpose. The rustic appeals to some because of the homespun, country feeling it gives; while to others it creates the ideas of open spaces and cabin lodges. How well either of the effects work depends upon the objects in the room, the lighting used, and the spaces surrounding them. You might not be ready to put a barn log on the ceiling yet, but there are several things you can do to give your home that cosy Arcadian look.
Wood turning is the art of using hand-held tools and a wood rotating machine referred to as lathe to create patterns and shapes symmetrical around the axis of the rotation.

From being a glimmer of an idea in an individual’s mind. an artisan makes magic out of simple, traditional tools and materials, to create an item which we use in our day-to-day lives; perhaps without knowing how it came by.
Here’s a layout of how that magic comes into being.

Wood is a timeless material for the kitchen, both in terms of functionality and aesthetic value. Silicon, steel, plastic all have their own uses and advantages, but wood has a charm that nothing can surpass. Wooden kitchen tools and utensils date back to the times of Ancient Egypt, and have been popular ever since then.
However, for the modern homemaker, it can be quite a challenge keeping wooden utensils clean without going into the routine of taking the whole load and putting it into the dishwasher and let the machine do its job. But no pain, no gain, eh?
Being a jewelry enthusiast can be more than just a lot of fun. How many times have we been looking for a favourite pair of earrings, only to find one? Or been trying to match the day’s outfit with a particular necklace, but taken ages to fish it out from all the tangled mess?
Managing, categorising and maintaining jewelry is not just a tedious task, it is also a difficult one. Here are a few ways and means of organising your jewelry so as to keep them free from tangles, breaks and tears, and of course, to ensure that you find what you’re looking for well in time.
Nestled in the Indo-Gangetic plains under the shadow of the Shivalik ranges, Saharanpur till date remains one of the most congenial and ideal places for creative development in the Indian subcontinent, perhaps because of its strategic location between a temperate zone of the doab of rivers Ganga and Yamuna. Due to being located on a high fertility river land, Saharanpur boasts of ample availability of quality timber. Wood, hence, became the most convenient material for construction in the medieval ages. Once stone replaced wood for building purposes, wood became more of a luxury material used in the art of hand-carving cottage industries.
If you are reading this, you are interested in the rustic.
Perhaps you have in your possession a beautifully handcrafted item that you look at, admire, use or display on a daily basis.
You could’ve got it at a local shop, or a retail store, or maybe from Rusticity’s website. You brought it as a surprise for your family or a gift for your loved one, or a treat to yourself the first time you bought an apartment. Perhaps you received it as a gift yourself. You adored it, your acquaintances envied it. But where was it made? Who made it? How did the art evolve?
Perhaps, more than once, you have wondered where it came from.
Rusticity brings to you a series of blog posts – Stories From A Sylvan Land – to answer such questions and bring you the backdrop against which that handcrafted rustic decor item sitting in your living room right now was born.
The word “Marble” comes from the Greek word Marmaron, literally giving it the meaning shining stone. While its appearance may suggest otherwise, marble is surprisingly easy to carve due to its softness and is hence an extremely popular choice in sculpting.
The western red cedar (scientifically known as the Thuja plicata) is a variety of softwood commonly found in the Pacific northwest United States and Canada. Unknown to many, the red cedar is actually not a cedar tree at all. It is, in fact, a juniper tree with several interesting uses to put it to. The tree grows up to two hundred feet in height, and can go on to live for more than a thousand years.
