Hathi Collection – All about Elephants!

Wednesday, 9 August 2017

As anyone who looks at our website or catalogue knows, we here at Myakka LOVE elephants. In fact we have dedicated a whole range to our favourite animal, the Hathi collection.

The Hathi collection is crafted from solid sheesham wood with each elephant panel being hand carved by skilled craftsmen. The name Hathi came from the Hindi word for elephant which perfectly combined the elephant carvings and the range being made in northern Rajasthan, India.

We first introduced our Hathi Cupboard back in 2006 (originally named the Elephant Cupboard) and since then the Hathi collection has been going from strength to strength, becoming increasingly popular. The elephant family now includes over 12 different furniture designs.

Every Hathi piece of furniture has hand carved elephant panels that are added to a frame to create a door or drawer front. Each panel has an elephant carving which has been hand carved by skilled artisans in India. This means every piece of Hathi furniture is unique which each carving being slightly different.  There can be anything from two to 16 elephant carvings in a piece of Hathi furniture with the Hathi Large Sideboard having 16 hand carved elephants.

The Hathi collection has a traditional Indian style similar to our Thakat collection. With turned legs and bevelled detail, the Hathi collection has been styled based on the original Elephant Cupboard that featured into our Thakat range. Carved and made from solid sheesham wood, the Hathi collection has the same finish as both the Mallani, Jasmeen and Thakat collections meaning that the collections can be easily coordinated and look great together.

And if you don't love the Hathi Collection enough, we’re donating 10% of sales from elephant products this month to the World Elephant Day Charity!
