Lambent Crystal Candleholder
Our partner works with underprivileged artisans who make stone and shesham wood crafts in the city of Karachi. It disperses orders to independently owned and operated onyx workshops that own their own equipment and rent or own their facilities. Most are family businesses employing several family members. Benefits to artisans include profit-sharing, pension plans and medical benefits. They provide interest-free loans and advances to artisans and pioneered fair trade practices in Pakistan’s stone industry while hiring artisans regardless of religion or ethnicity.
With every item purchased with us, a tree is planted in partnership with the National Forest Foundation.
Many benefits are ascribed to salt crystal lamps, due to the release of negative ions when heated. This release is said to help in reduction of indoor air pollutants, while benefiting the health of the room’s inhabitants. While these effects might be difficult to measure, the naturally warm and soothing glow created by the light is certain to lend a refreshing spirit to any room.
