Akbar International has been the preserver of the art of Parchinkari since 1979. What started more than 30 years ago as a single showroom with a handful of pieces, has now turned into 2 branches with a total of 10 showrooms. We have thousands of articles and a few hundred masterpieces for the connoisseurs of art. Hundreds of families of artisans who depend on Parchinkari for their livelihood have been linked to us for years and we take pride in supporting them and in keeping this art alive.

Through a span of 3 decades, we have had people visit us from all over the world who after witnessing the beauty of this art have found great appreciation for it. We have live and exclusive demonstration of Parchinkari by very skilled artisans on our premises. Parchinkari is an art passed down from generation to generation. Most of the artisans have been handed down this art through forefathers who learned this art from craftsmen of the Mughal era. The demonstration is translated by people who speak fluent English along with foreign languages like French, German, Spanish, Italian, Japanese and Russian.

We take our product quality very seriously and procure the best quality marble from the city of Makrana in Rajasthan, India. The marble for the Taj Mahal was obtained from quarries in Makrana and we use the same quality marble. Genuine quality, rare and beautiful semi-precious stones go through a tough process of selection and only the best are put to use.

Customer service is one of our biggest forte’. All of our products shipped are insured to 110% of their value and great care is taken in packaging through state of the art packing machines. The articles are couriered through DHL, Fedex and UPS by air and through Quicksilver by sea. As soon as a product is shipped we provide the client with the tracking number or Airway Bill number (AWB) so that they can track their shipment in real time. We are in constant touch with the client till he/she receives the shipment on time and in perfect condition.

It is because of the hard work of the entire Akbar family and the trust we have maintained with our clients that we have had guests visit our premises over again. “Atithi Devo Bhava” is a popular saying in India which means “Guest is God ” and we believe in the same, delivering to our guest the best possible experience.
