Handmade by artisans of Palam Rural Centre in Tamil Nadu, India. All of these soaps made in India use palm oil grown on local plantations. This palm oil provides work to local farmers and does not contribute to deforestation.
Treat yourself to this lovely lotus- scented soap, or give as a little gift!

About the artisans: This soap is handcrafted by traditional soapmakers in the marginzalized Harijan community in a village in Tamil Nadu region, southeastern India.  Your purchase provides artisans at the Palam Rural Centre with adequate housing and water, medical assistance and education funds for their children. With money from product sales, Palam has purchased land and homes for artisans (ownership traditionally unavailable to lower castes) and built a school for artisans' children. Other artisan benefits include healthcare and retirement pensions.
