I have a thing for lanterns. I am not sure why but I absolutely love them! I found this incredibly cute little diddy when browsing through The Hunger Site. I am sure most of you have seen on Facebook the click a day charities and The Hunger Site is one of them. You can purchase a variety of super cute fair trade, recycled and handmade products through The Hunger Site and the other charity sites. A percentage of your purchase will go to help feed children in areas of the world that have vast food shortages.
Feel good about spending money and decorating your home by shopping responsible. The Taj Mahal lantern is made from recycled materials and is a fair trade product of India.
Grace your home or porch with decor that echoes the Taj Mahal, named a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1983 and cited as “one of the universally admired masterpieces of the world’s heritage.” Celebrate that inspired glory and architecture with a fun and functional lantern that doubles as a singular work of art!
Made from colorful lightweight sheet metal obtained from various commercial product packaging and glass panes, this ingenious lighting takes what would otherwise be landfill-clogging garbage and transforms it into a veritable work of art. Interior of lantern is accessible by a small hinged door, and a built-in holder accommodates tea lights or votive candles. Due to their unique, recycled nature, no two are alike; please allow us to choose for you. Tea light not included.
Lantern measures approximately 13″ T x 4.5″ sq.(33 x 11.4 cm) overall. Made in and fairly traded from India.
