Zarina was born under a sandalwood tree
at the start of the twentieth century to an underprivileged Indian family. Legend has it, Zarina was not her birth name but she was later given the name “Zarina” meaning golden beauty, as her beauty became apparent and was talked about from village
to village. Zarina was also very creative, often helping her father and brothers produce metal goods in the small clay oven dug out of the floor of their humble shop. It was as if she had a magical touch as all the items she herself created would sell almost immediately. Her items were known for their beauty and quality and many deeply believed that they brought luck and fortune to their homes.
Each piece was unique, but all included a small gold colored sandalwood tree that she would hammer and carve from metal scraps and include with them. We hope this gift and its accompanying sandalwood tree will bring some of Zarina’s magic to your home.
