Almirahs, both big and small, were a staple piece in almost all Indian households. They were used to store salt and grain in the kitchen, or saris, quilts and other textiles in living spaces and bedrooms. Salvaged from Gujarat, this 80-year-old teak almirah was used to store clothing and brightly coloured kantha. It has its original brass hardware intact and has since been polished in a natural wax to protect the remaining remnants of its original paintwork. We think it would make a lovely cabinet for a living space, with room for both storage and display.
