Handcrafted Gifts With A Global Twist
Why not give your loved one a handcrafted Valentine’s Day gift this year, something with a story behind it?
For textile lovers, a hand embroidered cushions from our Kutch collection, like Advika, a vintage Rabari embroidery cushion cover featuring heart-shaped motifs would make a wonderful gift. The Rabaris are pastoral nomads living in Rajasthan and Gujurat with a distinctive style of embroidery which has been handed down from mother to daughter over generations. Steeped in cultural tradition this is a statement cushion to cherish.
If you are giving jewellery why not present it in one of our handcrafted Copper and Brass Trinket Boxes, which are perfect for storing chains, rings, earrings and cufflinks? Each piece has been handcrafted by a Tambat coppersmith in Pune, India, using techniques dating back to the seventeenth century. Tiny rows of uniform indentations on the surface, crafted with special hammers, create a mirror like appearance that reflects the light.
For romantic nights in try our super warm Moroccan Pom Pom blankets from our Souk Collection. These blankets are hand woven by Berber weavers and are designed to withstand the cold in the High Atlas mountains. They are perfect for snuggling under on chilly winter nights.
