Light up your home with these handcrafted candles in terracotta pots. Each candle comes wrapped in tissue, in an elegant brown paper box with a booklet sharing the story of the artisans who have crafted the candles. The box also contains a matching blank or personalised notecard, a gift tag, and a red ribbon to complete your festive gifting needs.
This initiative is a part of the Sitara project which works to promote agency, self-development and pride in young women artisans. We strive to keep alive heritage folk art and craft by engaging traditional skills and talents with more contemporary design narratives and contexts.
The young women making these candles and pots belong to the Kumbhar community, known for its pottery skills, in the Panchmahal district of Gujarat. These young women were inspired to find new ways to showcase their artisanal skills, innovate on design and yet remain connected to their family roots and traditions.
