In Nepali tradition, copper tableware is widely used for its beneficial properties. Similarly in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, it is said that we should make our offerings in vessels made from copper, silver or gold.
These plates are hand-hammered and carved by producers in Palpa, Nepal using basic tools. As a ritual item, we recommend using these plates for feast offering (tsok in Tibetan, ganacakra in Sanskrit) as well as tormas (balingta in Sanskrit).
