These old Indian cooking pots or bowls have previously been used to cook street food in India. They are frequently seen set over a clay fireplace as in the photo. No longer suitable for cooking, they can be repurposed as an unusual planter for your home or garden. Bright green foliage contrasts beautifully against the iron.
Each one is individually handcrafted and has characteristics as individual as the person who made it. Succulents look particularly good.
Supply is limited and depends on what we have sourced.
- We purchase these kadhais ethically from Rajasthan India when they are no longer suitable for cooking food.
- No two kadhais are the same. They are handmade by nomadic Indian traders by riveting iron plates together. The individual age is unknown, they can be up to 100 years old. They all bear the ‘scars’ of previous use.
- Please let us know if you would like a hole drilled in the bottom to drain rainwater away (recommended if you plan to use as a planter).
