Wabi Sabi- In traditional Japanese aesthetics, wabi-sabi (侘寂) is a world view centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection. The aesthetic is sometimes described as one of appreciating beauty that is "imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete" in nature.
Why we love it: Besides the fact that these holders are beautiful and one of a kind, they have a hole that's large enough to hold the larger sticks of the Incausa Incense.
We also really resonate with both the mission and the quality of products that the folks at Incausa create. In their own words,
"Incausa is a study to find meaningfulness in profit; for mindful growth: personal, community and society. Beginning by creating a product line for ritual and meditation practice that touches on the ancient traditions, that are pure in essence, materials and simplicity. And with a design that speaks of a sustainable distancing from automation to up-value the human hand touch.
With the profits of our "incausa-line" and logistics network, we are able to act as a pro bono mediator for the Indigenous productions, connecting their trade to the international market without profit share. Our study is to help support indigenous heritage and sovereignty. Building a sustainable opportunity pathway to the artisans and also the final retailers."
