This is a set of 6 napkin rings designed with gold leaf.  

The design is of interweaving leaves. 

We can gift wrap this for you using our 100% cotton fabric wrapping material.

This lacquerware is made from 100% natural material.  It is an authentic handcrafted product from Myanmar.  The inside casing and cover were made with black lacquer and the surfaces and outside casing were covered with gold leaf design.

Lacquerware may take from 4-8 months to finish due to the process of applying and drying lacquer multiple times. Drying lacquer may take 2-3 weeks per application.

"Shwei-zawa" is the Myanmar name for lacquerware making with real gold leaf (gold foil) designs. The lacquerware process is the same except on the last stage. The craftsman will carve his design using a sharp needle point pen on the surface but this time, the design will be on reverse. The entire area not carved will then be covered with gold leaf after a light thin lacquer is applied. This undertaking requires extreme care to make sure the gold leaf is applied well. Even fingerprints can leave a mark. Whew! It will then be kept again in the cellar for a few weeks to dry completely.
