Traditionally, the pettagama had many uses. It was a wooden rice box that was used to store paddy, away from mice and moisture. These heavy trunks were used as treasure chests for people to store their money and valuables. Their weight ensured that they could not be stolen easily.
The pettagama is not only a striking and timeless piece for your home but can also be used as a storage compartment. Crafted from natural teak wood, the top and the corners of pettagamas are usually decorated with brass studs and detailed pieces while the top is attached with large, engraved brass hinges. These days the pettagama is an iconic piece of furniture, which is used as a statement and decorative ornament while also doubling as a storage compartment.
