Description
Charming mango wood spice or storage box featuring a carved floral paisley motif and rustic white wash finish. Hand carved by artisans at Anima workshop in Saharanpur in northern India.

Saharanpur has about 30,000 wood artisans, and workers turnover among workshops is high. But at Amina workshop, the artisans tend to stay with the shop for a long time, including 10 men who have been with Anima since the beginning in 1992. Although there are many commercial exporting companies in the city, Shanawaz the owner says he has never been tempted to follow that path; he believes in Asha's philosophy of placing greater value in the artisans and the quality of life they and their families enjoy, than on turning out as many exportable wood products as quickly and cheaply as possible.
