Whilst decor and accessories should not always have to cost and arm and a leg, sometimes an investment into some hero pieces can really add the wow factor to your home.  This is certainly the case when it comes to the beautiful mineral marble and the treasures that can be carved from it. We are huge fans of using a touch of marble as it instantly adds elegance and sophistication to any home, even if it's a smaller piece. Marble is also a fabulous gift for a loved one as it will certainly stand the test of time and will be handed down through the generations.

Marble has been used for centuries and is known for its sturdiness and natural beauty.  We are so excited to receive our long awaited latest collection of marble decor.  Each piece within this container has been handmade and polished by skilled artisans in India. These artisans live in Jaipur the royal city of Rajasthan which is famous for being an epicentre for handicraft production. The art of marble is honed through generations of family skills and they still to this day are carved and honed using many traditional techniques. . . 

Marble is a natural stone which is formed by recrystallised carbonate minerals and it exhibits its subtle ‘veins’ which make it so special and ornate.  We love that each marble piece posses very tiny differences as each piece possess unique variations which make is so ornate and special.
