Ten Thousand Villages
The Stone Incense Holder Plate will look good in the homes of minimalists and maximalists alike! The gray and black palewa stone piece can hold up to five sticks of incense. Centuries ago, skilled stone workers were brought to Agra under Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan to build the Taj Mahal. Today their descendants remain in the region, using the same tools and methods to achieve intricate soapstone carvings and inlay for beautiful sculptures and decorative pieces.
Fair trade partner Tara Projects has been working with stone carvers in Agra for nearly two decades, improving the health and safety of producers, ensuring fair prices, and emphasizing the importance of education for children.
