This elegant gift duet includes the Lion Incense Holder paired with a box of Namche Bazar Incense by Astier de Villatte. The handcrafted ceramic lion holds incense in its mouth for a playful spirit. Namche Bazar is the transportive scent of the High Himalayas - black tea, patchouli, yerbe maté and musk.
A thoughtful and delicate gift for any proud-of-home individual with a sense of majesty.
Each box of incense contains 125 sticks with a burn time of approximately 30 minutes per stick.
Every piece of Astier de Villatte is hand crafted in Paris by a Tibetan ceramicist, using pre-industrial techniques that have been passed down for generations. Starting with black terracotta,sourced from the Parisian basin, each piece is finished with a milky glaze (or in this case a platinum glaze) that amplifies the unique character of the clay, celebrating its imperfections and ensuring that no two pieces are exactly alike.
Astier de Villatte incense is hand-made in Japan on the small island of Awaji, off the coast of Kobe. The incense is created using the world's oldest incense tradition, a thousand year old craft handed down from father to son.
