Tholubommalata - Art of Handpainted Leather Puppetry
An ancient folk art from the state of Andhra Pradesh, this is an art of shadow puppetry that had been the source of entertainment for years before the cinema and television came into being. Our artisans from Andhra Pradesh had painted the leather strips and made these beautiful table-top T-light candle holders. The chimney used is flame resistant. Traditional t-light candles can be used in these holders. We work with local artisans and redefine these age-old arts, giving a contemporary look to the products, so they fit in with the times while preserving their historic relevance.
