Varakh is an ancient craft technique in which very fine silver or gold foils are made, which are used to decorate sweets, fruits, paan and sometimes even used for cladding. The craft is practiced since ages and is in great demand among the people across the country. Since silver has high medicinal values therefore it is also used in few of the Ayurvedic medicines. Both men and women are involved in the making of this craft. Pannigaaron Ka Mohallah, near Subhash Chowk in Jaipur houses the community of Pannigars, the people involved in making Varakh. The narrow lanes are filled with the constant sound of hammering. Since ages, people are involved in making of the gold and silver foils; inspite of the several social and cultural issues raised against Varakh making.
