As we near the end of yet another year of caution, we can’t help but look back at how the smaller things have taken up bigger spaces in our hearts. Big Indian celebrations have switched to more intimate ones. Something as simple as catching a nap in between work, or making a yummy dish out of an experimental recipe gives us joy. So when it comes to enjoying more than one meal at the table with our families, a small yet significant piece of serveware really uplifts the moment. Afterall an everyday meal can be made special when something thoughtful is part of it. The products in this story for example are made by craftsmen who put a lot of effort into making each piece. So with each one, you get more than just another product, you get the result of skill and craftsmanship.
