This delightful white washed terracotta cross is handmade using all natural ingredients, and etched with a floral design. It hangs from a beaded jute string. Ingredients used include catechu, mangosteen extracts and charcoal. The clay is glazed with the juice of the mangosteen fruit extract and later soaked in it before being baked in a wood-fired kiln. Hand crafted by skilled artisans working with CORR- The Jute Works, one of our fair trade partners in Bangladesh.
