Our Hima Bindu Ornament Collection combines the art of traditional Indian wood craft with festive holiday designs, featuring solid wood block ornaments with a snow-kissed white rub finish. Artisans use hand tools to skillfully carve blocks of sustainably harvested wood into blocks which are dipped in dye and carefully applied to textiles by hand to create stunning block printed patterns. Traditional Indian wood craft requires mastery, passed on thru generations, to create the intricate carvings and refined finish.
Your purchase supports the livelihoods of artisans throughout India who have been handcrafting artisanal goods for generations. We proudly partner with women’s groups, minorities, people with special needs, urban slums, and isolated rural communities to empower artisans through dignified employment.
Since 2006, customer purchases have made it possible for us to complete more than 50 important community development projects for artisan groups in India. This includes solar panel installations, water conservation initiatives, vocational workshops, and access to healthcare. Plus, we’ve built kilns to ensure safer production of goods.
