These decorative boxes can be made in different designs and dimensions with desired logos.  The inner surface of these boxes can be covered with velvet (or suede) fabric or Khatam layers. These boxes can be ordered in series. Usually they are produced in triple series. These boxes can be decorated with only Khatam layers or combined Khatam and Tazhib/miniature paintings. 

An introduction to Khatam (Khatam-kari)
Khatam or Khatam-kari art is an ancient Persian technique of inlaying. In fact, it is a special type of Marquetry. In this art the surfaces of objects are decorated with very small triangles. Khatams various designs have always been in the form of regular geometric shapes. These geometric shapes are made by placing small triangles next to each other. These triangles are made of wood, metal, bone and oyster. The smaller and more delicate the triangles, the better the inlay. In an inlay design, at least three triangles are used to make the smallest geometric unit and up to four hundred triangles for the largest. Inlaying is done on both wooden and metal objects, especially copper.

How are Khatam-kari products made?
To make the khatam layers, first thin strips with a maximum thickness of 1.5 mm are made of wood, metal and bone. Prismatic wires are made of these strips during a special process. Then, by putting these wires together and gluing them with a special glue and finally pressing them, geometric volumes called Ghame are made. By changing the order of prismatic wires next to each other, different designs and patterns of Ghame will be obtained. Next, an inlay layer is obtained by cutting thin layers with a thickness of 1 to 1.5 mm from the made Ghameh. The inlay artist creates a custom design by using a combination of inlay layers and pasting them on the desired surface.
