From stocking filler to investment pieces, inspire aesthetes, magpies and art aficionados with the arty gifts we want now
All over the world, particularly in countries ravaged by war, traditional craftsmen fight the threat of mass production every single day.
But Ishkar, set up by Edmund and Flore, is the social enterprise triggering change. Creating a sanctuary for artisans from Syria and Afghanistan to work safely and efficiently, Ishkar works with individual craftsmen to preserve their age-old techniques.
We are coveting this set of six lapis blue hand-blown glass tumblers, which are the artistic creation of Afghanistan-based artisan, Ghulam Sekhi.
While Ghulam's traditional practice has been alive for 2000 years, he is sadly now one of the last in this ancient line of glassblowers.
This is design with a purpose, so spend freely (and guilt-free).
