Very nice set!
Handcrafted in the family-owned workshop of Mr. Dilshad Hussain. His father learned to craft cutlery in Moradabad, India, long known for its metalwork. Use these functional pieces of art for cocktail garnishes or hors d’oeuvres.
Measurements: 5.25" L ea.
Materials: Stainless Steel
Artisan Organization: Noah's Ark
Moradabad, India in 1986 was a place where the concept of Fair Trade did not exist, and where Mr. Samuel Masih noticed that most exporters were exploiting their artisans. An energetic local businessman with a heart for his people, Samuel established the organization not only to promote and support artisans, but also to invest profits in their social and economic development.
Noah’s Ark runs three schools, provides the families of their 700 artisans free health care and access to clean water, and has facilitated the building of 22 independent workshops. While Samuel admits that sometimes he feels like slowing down, knowing that he has hundreds of people behind him keeps him going.
The cup was made by Dilshad Hussain and his group of stainless steel artisans situated just outside Moradabad. Dilshad deals exclusively with Noah’s Ark, and the organization recently donated a dye press machine to his workshop.
Very nice set!
I just got them today so I haven't used them yet however, they have a nice weight and they look well made. They are delicate yet sturdy and the points are sharp and curved. I expect they will work well.
I'm very happy with them.
DO NOT count on them being in the box shown for gift purposes.
Mine came in individual plastic sleeves wrapped in bubble wrap.
