Straw Marquetry Technique

In our laboratory, the straw goes through several stages of preparation before being inlayed to the object. We clean and paint it by hand.


Then each strand is checked one by one to remove any imperfections such as sun spots or creases. And only after selecting the perfect straw, we start to inlaying in the marquetry technique.Straw marquetry consists of sticking a plant material, rye straw, on a support to create an element of decoration. This technique does not require the use of any machine, everything is done entirely by the hands of the master. Due to handmade work, no two objects are identical, all objects in Ruda Studio are completely unique.
