Gorgeous dish!

by

I got this as a gift for my MIL and she loved it!! I’d initially ordered from another site and it arrived broken. My order from The Grommet came perfectly packed and in tact. It is so well made and just a beautiful piece on its own. She can’t wait to use it for our next family gathering as a serving dish.More > < Less

Great look and great functionality!

I bought my Kamsah set about a month ago, and I am still loving how two-in-one this product is. It is a really well designed ornament that sits on my counter top next to other artistic pieces, and then doubles up as a dipping plate so well. A really great buy!!!More > < Less

Recipient Pleased

by

This was a gift for friends. They were pleased because they like to put out different types of olives and roasted peppers with certain snacks and meals. It was smaller than I expected (I ordered the large.) but I measured and it was correct.More > < Less

These dishes are beautiful! However, it would be helpful to see a size comparison of the small and large sets. It's difficult for me to imagine the sizes as they are listed in the descriptions.More > < Less

About Kamsah

Ceramic Tradition

The unique serving pieces from Kamsah—like their colorful hamsa dish—are handmade in Neapolis, Tunisia. This area is known as the Mediterranean’s ceramics center, with a history that dates back centuries.

To support this age-old craft, Kamsah pays the local women who make each piece a fair wage. And they give 10% of their proceeds to organizations benefiting those artisans. Everything is beautiful and meaningful, from the wave mug and coaster set to the eye-catching sun and hamsa dipping sets (made up of several small dishes that create the hamsa hand). It’s all safe for the dishwasher, microwave, and freezer, and is PTFE- and lead-free, too.

We appreciate Kamsah’s help in ensuring the artists and their tradition of craftsmanship continue to thrive. And we think it’s fitting the name Kamsah comes from the "hamsa" symbol, which stands for peace, protection, and prosperity.
