I bought this for my mom because she loves to host dinners and gatherings for her friends and family. She is hard to buy for because she has every kitchen gadget and accessory you can imagine, but she was delighted by this and said it was very pretty and unique.
Beautifully made

My wife really likes this set. It has special meaning since our trip to Morocco last year. The pieces are nicely made and the colors are striking. My one "issue" is with the size. I got the small set, since the big set would be too big for our purposes. The small set is a tiny bit too small. It's like we needed a medium size set.
Unique and beautiful

I love pottery and this is a unique and functional beauty!
Wish I had gotten the larger size

This was smaller than I was expecting. It arrived very well packaged and is a very pretty dish set. I might have sprung for the larger one, had I noticed the measurements and realized how small it was going to be.

Kamsah Dipping Set


This handmade hamsa dish set is made up of one large plate and six smaller serving or dipping plates. When placed together, the plates create a bright, colorful hamsa hand that symbolizes peace, prosperity, and protection. Each piece is made by local women for a fair wage in Nabeul, Tunisia, a city that’s been making renowned ceramics for centuries. And Kamsah supports the region even further, giving 10% of its profits to causes that benefit its artisans.

Kamsah

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.
