This singing bowl has a beautiful raised motif at the bottom and is gold plated. Singing bowls are traditionally used throughout Asia as part of Buddhist meditation practice, and are often used in mindfulness classes in schools. They are a type of bell, but rather than hanging, they sit with the bottom surface resting. Their sides and rims vibrate to produce a wonderful sound when tapped or rubbed gently with a wooden object. Handmade by skilled artisans working with Mahaguthi Craft with Conscience, one of our fair trade partners in Nepal.
Skilled Nepalese artisans work together at Mahaguthi in a large environmentally friendly production centre where textiles and paper products are designed and hand produced. Mahaguthi also supports entrepreneurial artisan workshops across Kathmandu to strengthen their businesses financially and socially.
