Elephant uruli

Urulis are traditional round shaped vessels that are extensively used in South India. They basically used as a cookware. But now, they take an important place in home decor. You cannot find an art lover’s home without this uruli. It is used as a centre piece where it is filled with fresh water and beautiful flowers like lotus and marigolds are left afloat on top of the water. It is a refreshing sight. The moment you take a look, you feel rejuvenated instantly.

With an adequate amount of sunlight to seep into your room, you can comfortably place it near the window or in a feasible corner to add to the beauty of the space. Moreover, growing indoor plants promotes good health by cleansing the surrounding air.


Lotus Fountain

Indoor fountains designed like mini pots that are alternately arranged and fountains that combine uruli and bamboo that are fixed together for water circulation are some of the current traditional designs.
