Barmer is the third largest district of Rajasthan and forms a part of the Thar desert. It is surrounded by Jaisalmer district in the north, Jalore district in the south, Pali and Jodhpur districts in the east, and Pakistan in the west. The town of Barmer is a small desert outpost, almost 50 kilometers from the international border.


The landscape is semi-arid and barren, with little vegetation. The town is cluttered and dusty. Barmer isconnected by train from Jodhpur, Jaipur, and Munnabao on the border, and by buses from other major cities and nearby towns of Rajasthan. It has two national highways crossing it and has direct trains connecting it to some major cities of India.


The origins of Barmeri craft furniture lie in the havelis and the forts of Jaisalmer. The core material used has gradually shifted from stone to wood.


During the Indo—Pak wars, Barmer evolved as a significant military base. The army took interest in Barmeri furniture and provided a ready market for artisans to sell their products, after which, the demand for the craft crossed national borders.


The intricate carvings and excellence in detail are the remarkable features of the Barmeri craft. A few standard carving patterns are used in various alterations and combinations.

The parts of the furniture are cut to size and marked for carving. Specialized hand tools are used to carve out the details. Finally, the finished pieces are linked. The items are perfected by sanding, polishing, and coated by melamine.
