Beautiful white hand painted stainless small bowl from the Kashmir region, with intricate floral design. Each bowl is hand painted by talented artisans in Srinagar. Great for holding little trinkets or jewellery - or on it's own just for show!
Kashmir is an area that is affected by separatist unrest, a territorial conflict primarily between India and Pakistan. Due to the ongoing conflict, Kashmir is at an economic disadvantaged and so employment opportunities are much lower than in other areas.
With hand painted enamelwork, local artisans are able to have much needed employment to support themselves and their families whilst also having a safe environment in which to work in. Furthermore, selling these items through cooperatives and well established ethical export companies, these artisans are able to ensure the future of their traditional craft as well as highlighting the region of Kashmir as a whole.
*Due to the hand made nature of the product and the journey from Asia to London, imperfections may occur. For example, slight scratches/smudges etc. There are no stencils or assembly lines, so no two items are exactly the same.
