  • Description

    Style is in season! Carved from palewa stone and accented with copper paint, these Stone Salt & Pepper Shakers bring more to the table. Centuries ago, skilled stone workers were brought to Agra under Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan to build the Taj Mahal. Today their descendants remain in the region, using the same tools and methods to achieve intricate soapstone carvings and inlay for beautiful sculptures and decorative pieces.

    Our fair trade partner Tara Projects has been working with stone carvers in Agra for nearly two decades, improving the health and safety of producers, ensuring fair prices and emphasizing the importance of education for children.

    I love the salt and pepper shakers, but the stone darkened from fingers which may have had oil on them.
    I have tried washing off the marks but have been unable to do so.
