Why We Love This

Assortment of five small lidded sindoor boxes from southern India. "These boxes were used to store a red pigment that Indian women would streak down the parting line of their hair once they married to signify the blood of life and vitality," Michael Aram explains. "Once they become widows, they removed the vermillion pigment and typically removed bindis and jewelry and wore more-subdued colors."

About the Brand

Most visitors to India gravitate to the north--Jaipur, New Delhi, Agra. On her most recent shopping trip to India, One Kings Lane co-founder Susan Feldman headed south instead, to Kochi and Chennai, and she invited along Michael Aram: Not only is he one of our favorite tableware designers, but he’s also lived in India for 25 years. Together they brought back these choice finds that we're excited to be sharing with you.
