Do these come with individual sacks or covers?
Great for group gifts. I used for charity work they come with great info about the women who create them and benefit from the purchase. "Feel Good" gift for sure. Meaningful, well made, useful and beautiful. I would order again for any occasion. Easter Baskets, stockings, hostess gifts with a cause. Go for it!...

Story Behind the Art: We call these Festival of Lights mirrors because they are made for use during Diwali, an important 5-day festival in India where lamps are lit and gifts are given, a festival that celebrates the triumph of Goodness over Evil. That festival occurs in the fall between mid-October and mid-November. The artisans are Laila and Fatima, for the most part. Fatima and Laila live and work with their extended 18-member family on the outskirts of Jaipur, in the colorful state of Rajastan, India. Three generations live in a narrow, three-story house in a settlement of similar houses overlooking a small valley. Goats and chickens wander among the children playing around the entrance to the house. Each mirror is a labor of love, and many hands.
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.

I purchase them for my club exchange for Christmas. They were a perfect little gift that everyone liked and I didn't brake the bankRead More
I bought these to support the international artists and to have nice little "stocking stuffer" gifts. I received many compliments in feedback. One other reviewer did note--these mirrors don't have a lid, so they might not get much use in pocketbooks/etc.Read More
Small gifts to have on hand for when you need a small thank you gift. I had to find small boxes to put them in--wish that Overstock had made that easier.Read More
These gems were so well received for their artistry,color, quality, and satin drawstring pouch. I enclosed one in each female holiday gift near and afar...a common denominator in our connection despite geography:) I think I will also make a mobile as there are still several in my gift resources! And best of all, they support fair trade world market.oxRead More
These make a wonderful small gift. Keep on hand for those times.....Read More
I did not realize that the mirrors do not "close" like a clam shell or come with a pouch to protect the mirro, It's just an flat mirrorr. If you put this in your purse, the mirror is going to get scratched. I am disappointed because now I will have to purchase something to put the mirror in before I give these as gifts to make them functional. I should have read the description more carefully.Read More
They are nicely crafted, with mirrors and beading. It looks meticulously hand made, but probably is not. It is very sturdy and has a nice weight. I am using them as paper weight to mark file piles. Thinking of creating a two sided small panel. Mirror on one side and beads and diamond shaped mirrors on the reverse. Great stocking stuffer. They could use a little bag for that which is sold elsewhere on the site.Read More
Junk. Don't waste your money. Poor craftsmanship. Trim looks like it is made from tin and "beading" is crooked in most.Read More
These made great stocking stuffers and small gifts for friends, to let them know that you are thinking of them.Read More
