Tilnar Art was formed in 2005 by Tom Hawes. Tom gave up a career as a successful London Solicitor to form Tilnar Art as he wanted to help many of the artists he had met on his various trips to Zimbabwe.

Tilnar stands for 'This Is Life Not A Rehearsal' and Tom passionately believes you should, where possible, work in areas that you are passionate about and enjoy.

Tilnar says this:

Our aim is to buy high quality, ethically sourced and environmentally friendly products from disadvantaged producers from across the developing world in order to help people trade out of poverty.

We are a relatively small family run business that looks to work with individual artisans, co-operatives and small businesses across the developing world.  Tilnar Art is proud to be a member of BAFTS, the British Association for Fair Trade Shops and Suppliers. 

These products are made in India from 100% recycled aluminium, saving 90% of the energy when compared to using new aluminium from bauxite.

The spent aluminium products are melted down and poured into moulds created in sand - this is a time-honoured tradition in this area of India.

Once cooled, the sand mould is removed, the aluminium is polished and the enamel is applied by hand. Finally a food safe lacquer is applied. 

The supplier in Northern India was established by two brothers in 1992 and now employs over 100 men and women on permanent contracts all working in-house.

Nobody under 18 is employed and men and women are paid the same. In addition, and unusually for India, sick pay, paid breaks and contributions to children's education are part of the system here.

Safe for cold foods.

Not dishwasher safe.

Customers are advised not to display these products on window sills or in conservatories as colours may fade in direct sunlight.

I am delighted with the dishes - they are beautiful. The inclusion of a Christmas card and a free face mask was a lovely touch. I will definitely be ordering from you again and will recommend you to all my friends too.
