Hand-carved, ethically sourced Indian rosewood owl will hold your glasses with style and charm. The traditional craft of woodcarving plays an important role for many Muslim artisan communities in small towns and agricultural villages in north-central India.
Each artisan uses hand tools to skillfully carve blocks of sustainable Indian Rosewood into fine treasures. The woodcraft partner artisans belong to collectives in the region that provide basic services and development solutions to enable self-sufficiency, including healthcare and education. Literacy rates and income opportunities are quite limited in the area, so woodcraft production is vital for community livelihoods.
Materials: Sheesham wood
Dimensions: 3" L, 3" W, 5.5" H
