India has been blessed with a rich culture of multiple architectural styles that continue to influence design in current times. Every region in India has its distinct, unique style that characterizes traditional products of the region. Among other things, intricate carvings in wood featuring everything from fine lattice designs to kaleidoscopic patterns have always held great popularity in both crafted products and architecture. India is probably one of the few countries in the world where hand carving continues to be practiced quite commonly. However, many suppliers have adopted CNC machines to achieve large scale production of carved wooden products.
