Product Description

Handcrafted in the Dharavi slums of Mumbai, these beautiful clay pots with candles help support street children and the Dalit people of India.

These traditionally shaped round clay pots are similar to those used by the Dalit people in India in chai shops and coffee houses. Filled with beautifully scented beeswax, the Pavani candle will make a stunning ambient addition to any room.

About the Producers: For centuries, the Dalit people in India have been known as the 'untouchables', people that are expected to drink from clay cups which are then destroyed. Life Association, the charity behind Dalit Candles invite people in Mumbai to create these clay pots and then fill them with the finest beeswax. The clay pot candles are sold in the UK and make a stand against this powerful symbol of oppression. The profits from the sale of these candles go straight back to the help the Dalit people of India.

Burn Time: 26 hours. Dimensions: 7cm x 7cm.
