Among some of the most interesting and attractive handicrafts of Pakistan are those made of camel bone. Bone being a long lasting material is a good ingredient to put into making articles of utility and leisure. Since the use of elephant’s bone to produce items is restricted in most areas, the camel bone is used as a perfect alternative for this purpose. These products highly resemble the ivory products. Camel being an animal of desert is easily available in areas surrounded by deserts and is a common source of food for locals and therefore the craft of making products from camel bone for the purpose of both, beauty and usage are made as a source of earning bread in these areas. These items might include jewelry boxes, key chains, chess boards and decoration pieces such as vases etc.
