Exquisite and beautiful vase
This is my fourth piece from Gulam Rasools collection and it is as beautiful as all the others I purchased. There is a lot of intricate detail on this tall vase and the jali pattern makes it look like lace set in stone. Thank you so much - it gives me great joy every time I look at it.
I collect journals, especially unique ones, and I also collect bird figurines in pottery, ceramic and glass and bird paintings. The kingfisher is one of my favorites because it is so colorful. Artisan Asha Prabha has done a masterful job with this handmade paper journal. The back cover reproduces an antique postcard.
Absolutely Loving my coasters
I have been collecting elephants for the past 6 years or so. I recently got a new dining table and felt something was missing. This absolutely does it, I love it so much and I am so happy that we get to see and use them at meal times. The design is beautiful, I would like to give thanks to Gulam Rasool for creating such an amazing piece of art and sharing it with us. Now we have a little piece from him too.

A symbol of optimism and of life itself, fig leaves poise on spiral stems. Gulam Rasool is a master at traditional or openwork carving. Working in soapstone, he crafts a beautiful pair of candleholders for the romantic glow of tea lights.
Fair Trade Embellished Ottoman Foot Stool from India, "Rajasthani Patchwork"$99.95
Women working in textile studios in Rajasthan embroider and hand-bead the vintage fabric that adorns this colorful footstool, designed by Ganpat Mehta. Removable acacia wood legs make it easy to store, but a piece this versatile is likely to always find a use. Try it as a footstool, low table, or even extra seating at a party. Each footstool uses upcycled textiles in blue-green tones, but the unique materials ensure that no two designs will be exactly alike.
