Silver Filigree, an important export item of Orissa from the ancient times, is locally known as “Tarakashi”. It is an ancient art internationally known for its elegant craftmanship. It is the most exquisite art of Orissa and the artisans who make these items reside mostly in Cuttack and a few villages of the Cuttack district. To make any filigree item, beaten pure silver is used to draw fine strands of wire which are soldered to form designs. Delicate and artistic jewellery, unique and beautiful gift articles, show pieces are a few from the wide variety of products made by the craftsmen.
