The Indies Writing Table was inspired by bamboo furniture found in some parts of Asia. The East Indies or the Indies are the lands of South and Southeast Asia. In a more restricted sense, the word Indies can be used to refer to the islands of the Indonesian Archipelago and the Philippine Archipelago. The name “Indies” is derived from the River Indus and is used to connote parts of Asia that came under Indian cultural influence. The Indies Writing Table evokes the memories of bamboo plantations of the Dutch East Indies. Bamboo also plays an important role in traditional Chinese culture and is regarded as a behavior model of an upright individual. As bamboo has features such as uprightness, tenacity, and modesty, people endow bamboo with integrity, elegance, and plainness, even though it is not physically strong. According to eastern beliefs a person does not need to be physically strong, but must be mentally strong, upright, and persevering. Just as a bamboo is hollow-hearted, one should open one’s heart to accept anything of benefit and never have arrogance or prejudice. In Japan, a bamboo forest sometimes surrounds a Shinto shrine as part of a sacred barrier against evil. Many Buddhist temples also have bamboo groves. With the foregoing in view, Shah Gilani, ISFD, designed this writing table to bring joy and good luck to the user. Custom sizing is available.
