Cute and clever

My sister-in-law loved it. She might use it to sort beads, clasps, etc for jewelry making., or to display finished items. It's smaller than I expected.More > < Less


Recipient Pleased

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


Too small

It’s beautiful but unfortunately too small to use as a serving dish. In hindsight I wish I had ordered the larger one. The blue color is unavailable in the larger size at this time, I’m returning this one .More > < Less


very small

I got the large Kamsuh dipping set and I'd hate to see the small set. There is no way I could use this for a party of more than two people. It's pretty but that's all I can say for it. It holds 3ounces of pretzels. I measured, and forget potato chips, unless you want to break them into little pieces. I think you get the idea.More > < Less

About Kamsah

Ceramic Tradition

The unique serving pieces from Kamsah—like their colorful hamsa dish—are handmade in Nabeul, 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.
