Story Behind the Art:
This product is finely made by ASHA Handicrafts, in Mumbai, India. ASHA, established in 1975 as a non-profit to promote Fair Trade practices, represents more than 5,000 workers in 19 different cities and villages in India. They help small-scale handicraft cooperatives that are disadvantaged because they lack financial and marketing knowledge. ASHA in Sanskrit means 'Hope', and Asha has brought hope into what was largely a 'hopeless' situation by providing a marketing outlet for the craft of talented artisans.
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 have traveled to other countries and bought these types of "puzzle" boxes before. I figured overstocks being a world stock consumer the quality would be better than what I got. I bought this as a gift box for a gift and was sorely disappointed. I have better looking boxes that I purchased on a dirt road in guatemala. But it could have been worse, it works a bit coarse and crude in the woodwork very basic. I guess fair for the price considering shipping.
