This wooden tealight holder is a must-have for any home.

The hamsa or "evil eye" is considered a symbol of good fortune and luck. Often seen in the Middle East and North Africa, this protective talisman was traditionally used to ward off negative energies by those who believe it can protect their homes from evil spirits! The palm-shaped amulet is often used in jewellery and home decor items. The design provides an interesting, earthy feel that you don't find elsewhere. Hamsa is also known as the Hand of Fatima in Islam and the Hand of Miriam in Judaism.

In Indian culture, Hamsa means "five" and is thought to represent the fingers of our hand. It is considered a symbol for our chakras, energy flow, five senses, and mudras that affect them.

Create an inviting atmosphere for friends and family to spend time together.

About Indian Woodcraft & Artisans

Woodcraft in India is dated back to the ancient times of Maharajas. Initially, the art was limited to carving sculptures and windows of temples and palaces. Over many generations and under the influence of its region's culture and locally available wood the art form has evolved and now extends to articles like furniture, decorative pieces, storage boxes,  table lamps, toys, and puppets

India has an abundance of native wood that lends well to the carving and inlay work. Some examples are Ebony, Rosewood, Sandalwood, Sheesham, and Sal.

The diversity of each region's style and carving technique reflects in the motifs, and patterns on each carved article. The geometrical and floral patterns are the most popular.

In many regions, woodcraft production is vital for community livelihoods. By participating with Fair Trade organisations, we contribute to alleviating poverty and promoting sustainability through ethical practices. These organisations aim to educate and empower disadvantaged sections of the Indian community by providing them with job opportunities, gender equality, fair wages, safe and healthy working environment while preserving the local culture & traditional skills.
