The beautiful, authentic incense burner and storage box is made by hand in India. The supplier is a true artist when it comes to woodworking. The burner is made of sustainable wood and is about 30 cm long.
On both ends, there is a tiny hole in which you can place your incense stick; while burning, the ash will fall into the box. Underneath, there is some space to store your incense sticks.
The Yin-Yang sign originates in Taoism. Taoism is a Chinese philosophical and religious movement. In Taoism, one does not believe in a personal God, the way Christians do, but rather they believe in some kind of primal force from which everything originates. Tao stands for the eternal and the limitless. It stands for the basis of everything; for good and evil, earth and heaven, the soul, the primal force, the creation, nothing and everything.
The aim of Taoism, is for one to be in complete harmony with nature and the universe. In Taoism, one also believes in reincarnation; to be reborn. People are continuously reborn until they are one with the universe, with nothing and with everything. At that point, one has reached immortality, and that is the end goal.

Wood from the Mango Tree is not only beautiful, it is also sustainable! These days, it is very popular in the furniture industry. Additionally, the wood is immensely strong, which makes for very sturdy products. The name kind of gives it away, but the wood comes from the Mango Tree. These fast-growing trees can reach a height of 40 meters. Additionally, they have thick and broad trunks with a circumference of 3 to 5 meters. The products made of mango wood are exceptionally sustainable and environmentally friendly, because the trees are only processed when they do no longer carry any fruits. Thus, it is a by-product.
Additionally, our supplier never throws any wood away. They measure exactly what they are able to make out of the leftovers. The wood is warm and has light abnormalities in colour.
In short, a beautiful piece of nature turned into true art!
We believe in fair trade and so does our woodworker. A fair price is paid for these products.
