Afghan Temple Launches Soon on Net A Porter

The dramatic, one-of-a-kind Afghan Temple collection is soon to launch on Net A Porter. Perfect for the current 70s mood, these unique pieces were handcarved in Jaipur in maple and then painted by miniaturist Sughra Hosseini in Kabul, before being realised in to gems in London by gilder Rupert Coke, and master goldsmiths Martin Baker and Peppi Taylor. Afghan Temple is the first in a new series of carved wood collections, created in collaboration with traditional artists from across the Silk Route.
