Love Message Heart Dish
This heart-shaped dish comes with a small scroll for you to write a message to your love. Artisans with the Association for Craft Producers (ACP) in Kathmandu, Nepal handmake these dishes at the foot of the Himalayas.
Ten Thousand Villages has a wonderful description of ACP: "...a nonprofit group that provides design, marketing, management, and technical services to low-income artisans, the majority of them women, providing regular, fair wages. In addition to a central production and design workshop, the association maintains a full-time staff. ACP also owns a retail outlet called Dhukuti in Kathmandu, Nepal. ACP has successfully balanced its business priorities with a strong sense of social obligation. Producer benefits include medical and counseling services, a savings program and retirement fund, paid maternity and paternity leave, education allowance to encourage education especially of daughters, low-interest loans for producer groups, clothing and household allowances, and seminars on health, nutrition and women’s rights."
The dish is approximately 2.25"L (from top of heart down to point) x 2.25"W (at widest point of dish) x 1.25"H inches. Fair trade certified.
