Hailing from Agra, land of the legendary Taj Mahal, artisans Raj Kumari and Raja Ram present this ingenious candle and incense holder. Natural soapstone is carved in the traditional jali or openwork style of India, allowing the fragrance of the incense to waft through the holes. The versatile base cube can hold either an incense stick or a taper candle of various sizes, as the holes on each side are different diameters. By removing the inner cube, the holder could also be used for a votive candle.

Novica sales are instrumental to this family's survival, accounting for 50% of their monthly income. They are a dedicated family of artisans who continually struggle to make ends meet.

Raja Ram is from Agra, home to the Taj Mahal. Like many in Agra he learned the art of marble carving and inlay at an early age. Years later when his children were grown, he taught this art to his wife Raj Kumari. They love this centuries old intricate Indian craft and hope that their children and grandchildren continue it.

Raja Ram has a daily struggle to manage his chronic diabetes. It has impacted his work and the income from his workshop is diminishing. He and his wife struggle to make ends meet.

Raj and Raja's son is grown and educated but Raj and Raja now help with the educational expenses of their two grandchildren.

The income from their workshop provides for the entire family which includes their son and two grandchildren.

The Women's Empowerment badge is awarded to female artisans or artisan groups that are led by women.

I purchased the ""blue harmony"" jewellery box, and I can't help but smile every time I look at it, as it is so beautiful, and stunning, and luxurious. I truly treasure this piece, it's just amazing.
