During Diwali, the Hindu festival of lights, families gather to celebrate with lanterns, fireworks, and candles. In India's rural states, Diwali decorations often incorporate tiny slivers of mirror that cast glittering reflections. Perfect for stocking stuffers or party favors, these compact-size mirrors are crafted in that same sparkling spirit. Rajasthani women gather lac, a resin from trees, and mold it like clay into a disk shape. Before the lac hardens, beads and hand-cut mirrors are pressed into its surface.

Made in India. 2 1/2'' diameter.

These traditional Diwali votives begin with lac—a resin that Gujarati women gather from trees and mold like clay. Before the lac hardens, beads and hand-cut mirrors are pressed into its surface. Replaceable tea-light candles included. Set of four. Handmade in India.

                      Our security socks feature a zippered pocket that’s big enough to hold a passport, hotel key, or other essentials. Other security socks provide only enough room to hold a few bills or one key, but out gentle compression socks have a pocket that’s big enough for bulkier items, and is cleverly constructed to stay up even when fully loaded. The footbed is made with a medical-grade yarn that helps reduce swelling and fatigue, whether on long flights or long days on your feet.
