This collection of Authentic Imperfections comprise of ceramic vessels which have been made by hand in Hala, Sindh, which is in the South of Pakistan. These have been named imperfections because they are chipped in some places, however that is the very charm of the product and much like Pakistan, which perhaps lacks refinement but offers some much authenticity and beauty than perhaps other destinations that superficially may appear perfect. 

Story behind the Name

Lok Visa also known as Pakistan's National Heritage Museum owes its name to the National Institue of Folk and Heritage (Lok Virsa), which overseas the museum's development and manages all events which takes place there. 

The building comprises of red and blue brick, so I thought that this vessel was very fitting of the name. 

Our Candles 

These candles are made to order and you have a choice of which wax and scent you'd like them to be made from. They are made by me in my kitchen with a lot of love and affection as I wish to take you away to Pakistan through the collection of scents which bring back nostalgic memories of Pakistan and through which I wish to share the sensorial experience with you.

This vessel is 40cl and has a burn time of around 45 hours.

Once the candles burn out these make great keepsakes for storing other items or we can arrange a refill for you at a reduced rate of £19.99, however you would have to cover the cost of P&P to send the vessel back to us.
