Meenakari is the art of decorating metal with enamelling. It was introduced by the Mughals though originated in Persia. Raja Man Singh of Amber brought this art to Rajasthan. He invited skilful meenakars from the Mughal palace at Lahore and established them in Jaipur, which became the centre of Meenakari later on in India. The Meenakars belong to the Sohail caste of Kshatriyas and identify themselves with the name of Meenakar or Verma. Meenakari design needs a high degree of skill and techniques. This is a hereditary craft and it is rare that outsiders are allowed to acquire any knowledge of their craft. Colours like red, green and white, dominate this art of enamelling. It can be said that both silver and gold metals are used as the base for Meenakari work in India. At present time, Meenakari is done in the metals like silver and copper to suit the need and style of the modern people. 
Passionate about Rajasthan and engaged with hundreds of artisans, potters, woodworkers, bandana and leheriya tie-dye workers, banjara women, lacquerware bangle makers, stone inlay workers and name meenakari artisans and block-printing craftspersons, they are ambassadors for all the local craftspersons.
