Beautifully grained walnut wood is traditionally the base material for this item and is offset by other woods including peach wood, apricot wood, rose wood, lemon wood, and olive wood each with subtly contrasting colors and grains.

Syrian Mosaic Industry and Art
Mosaic is an ancient Syrian art that is more than 300 years deep in Damascus’ history; it is the art of grafting wood with shells, silver or ivory. Early in the 19th century, mosaic existed in the houses of almost all well-established Syrian families, after which it became a familiar décor in presidential palaces around the world.
The craft utilizes different types of wood including walnut, beech and other types, but the delicacy of it lies in the maker’s imagination, who innovatively manipulate geometrical shapes, octagons, squares, hexagons and triangles, to come up with unique pieces.
