This handmade soap comes in an adorable box with two elephants kissing beneath the mistletoe, and lettering that reads, “Merry Kissmas.” The mistletoe scent is similar to a clean pine. Made from natural vegetable oils.
Who Made It: Palam Rural Centre offers employment opportunities to people of the marginalised Harijan community in a village in Tamil Nadu region of southeastern India. In the Tamil language, Palam means “bridge.” Palam Rural Centre seeks to build a “bridge” from the markets to the rest of the world. Palam has been able to purchase land and homes for artisans (ownership traditionally unavailable to lower castes) and built a school for artisans’ children. Through this work, Palam Rural Centre is providing dignity and security to artisans and helping to break down caste walls in society.
