Stone Ombre Magnifying Glass

Rated 4.6 out of 5
14 Reviews

This amazing handmade piece was produced by, wait for it, 3 separate artisan groups in India! The stone, brass and glass materials are all sourced and developed by artisans in different areas of the country. Each separate element had to be shipped from one artisan group to another in the area for finishing and assembly. Amazing!

THE STORY BEHIND THE PRODUCT

Artisan Organization: Noah's Ark

Country: India

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.

Stone Ombre Magnifying Glass

This is a beautiful piece and quite useful, although the handle easily slips away from the glass and I'm afraid it will eventually slip and break.

Stone Ombre Magnifying Glass

I and th made a mistake with the stars and don't know how to correct it. I meant to give this magnifying glass a 5+ stars. The size is perfect, small enough to fit in my purse but large enough to be of value. The handle is beautiful without being flashy and the glass itself if perfect, no waves or distortions. I have not left house without it since it arrived. I love it!!!

A beautiful necessity!

I bought two of these and will probably get more! I don’t care if you’re 18 or 80 there seems to be no end to how tiny print can get. Who can read the fine print on a medicine bottle, for instance! Even recipes on jar labels are tiny. Everybody needs a magnifying glass for something and these are really very good and very attractive.
