More information

The technique that consists of inlaying in a hard wood, such as walnut, cut pieces in other woods, bone or mother-of-pearl, or stained woods. Of oriental origin, it was already practiced with perfection in Córdoba in the 10th century, later being simplified during the Nasrid period. This technique will continue to be carried out by Mudejar craftsmen and will later pass to the Christian Kingdoms where we will have outstanding examples of the 16th century of desks also called bargueños, made with inlay.
