Paisley Design Wooden Block

Availability: Out of stock

An intricately carved mango wood print block with a paisley pattern: perfect as a stylish ornament.

We think this makes a lovely ornament which would look good in any room in the house or you could use it as an exceptionally lovely paperweight.

These blocks have been handmade by skilled artisans working for an inspirational Fair Trade organisation in northern India.

Dimensions: 17 x 12 x 6 cm

All our mango wood products are hand carved by WFTO accredited producers in India. They are made entirely by hand using traditional skills handed down from generation to generation. Mango trees have an extremely long life but eventually do stop bearing fruit and are replaced by younger trees. As India produces, by far, the most mangos in the world this results in a massive industry using one of the most sustainable woods known to man.

Tara Projects making a differenceThese products are made by TARA Projects (Trade Alternative Reform Action). They are a WFTO and Fair Trade Forum India organisation that we have wanted to work with for a long time. We are really pleased that we have now the opportunity to work with such dedicated people.

TATA projects began in the early 1970's with the object of creating opportunities and support for economically disadvantaged home based artisans and crafts people of Delhi and its surrounding areas. Over the years the project has extended its work into the adjoining states of Uttar Pradesh, Haryana and Rajasthan.

TARA project's provides services to enable the production and marketing of handicrafts following  Fair Trade principles, alongside providing education and support to empower the grass roots crafts people.

All the heart of TARA project's work is dedicated to eradicating poverty by fighting against exploitation and illiteracy of the producers and its working communities.

You can be happy that you are buying this product knowing that you are directly helping the people who have made it.

Nice decorative block. Bought this as needed a mango wood piece due to the type of paint I used where the colour originates from cows urine after eating mangos.... Glad you like the block, would be interested to see some of the artwork! I've just returned from India, plenty of cow urine and mangos there.  Thanks for the feedback.
