Copper Tea Light Holders

£26.00

Handcrafted Seed Pod Copper Tea Light Holders

Add a rich golden and orange glow to a room with these organic, fair trade, copper  tea light candle holders.  Designed in the shape of seed pods these copper tea light holders work well alone or grouped in twos or threes.

The copper is hand beaten using a technique called ‘Matharkaam’ which is the distinguishing feature of Tambat copper craft.  Rollover the photos to see the tiny indentations which are made with specially profiled  beating hammers.  These tiny, uniform, indentations strengthen the tea light and enhance the rich surface by imparting a mirror-like appearance.  It is a highly skilled craft, one which has been carried out by the Tambat people since the seventeenth century.

These wonderful, copper tea light holders are produced by  INTACH, an NGO, working in collaboration with the copper artisans of  Maharastra to revive and preserve the ancient craft by introducing contemporary designs, providing skills development and marketing support.  They create a wonderful glow indoors or outdoors.  Perfect for an evening barbecue.

The copper tea light holders come in a presentation box complete with tea light and make great gifts.
