Product Description

Add a touch of color to your every day decor! This fabulous flared top bowl will add some pizzazz to your coffee table or nightstand and has an amazing story to tell. Also great for a change or key holder by the door. 

The village of Sertung, Nepal, sits two days walk from any road. Primarily a traditional farming community, their remote location makes any source of supplemental income as they are waiting for the harvest incredibly difficult. Adding to the stress, they were one of the many villages heavily damaged during the earthquake that struck Nepal in April 2015. With no electricity, and limited tools available, they buy scrap sari fabric (which is carried on their backs for the two day walk home) that they weave, braid, or wrap to create beautiful crafts.

  • Made by hand in Nepal
  • 6" diameter at top x 3-1/2" tall
  • Recycled sari scraps wrapped around cotton rope
  • Due to the use of upcycled fabric in this product, colors will vary.
