Stunning stainless steel tiffin hand painted by incredibly talented artisans in Kashmir, India. You can see the individual brush strokes on every piece.
The word ‘Tiffin’ comes from the British Indian word meaning ‘light lunch’. In Mumbai, the word mostly refers to packed lunches, prepared for working Indian men by their wives, or for school children by their parents. In Mumbai thousands of Tiffin boxes are delivered to their destinations by ‘Tiffin Wallahs’, using a highly complex system. It truly is a wonder to behold how the thousands of unaddressed Tiffin’s somehow reach their final destinations.
The tiffin is made up of three compartments and includes 2 metal plates. Tiffin’s are perfect for picnics, storing cakes and biscuits or used as pretty serving bowls. Add a bit of Kashmir into any room.

They are authentic Kashmiri hand painted items and any imperfections tells the story of its beautiful journey from a home in Kashmir to England.
