Known by many names - martaban in North India, Barni in West India and jaadis in the southern part of our country, there is no denying that many of us have seen these jars in our growing up years as they were once a permanent kitchen feature across the country and extensively used to make pickles. Their thick walls and aeration allowed for long term storage.
These old ceramic jars, with a little dent or chipped end, have been given a fresh lease of life as colourful vases with addition of vintage artwork. While cherry blossom barni vase is most popular, we also have some with vintage ads handpainted on it for some quirk.
Fill it with wild flowers, dried branches draped with fairy lights or just a lot of green leaves or display it for nostalgia.
