The exquisite Peepul Tree or Sacred Fig has a close, age-old connection with India. It is under this tree that the Buddha gained enlightenment. It is a tree that has been respected across faiths and celebrated in art throughout history. In fact, the earliest representation of the Peepul Tree can be found in a Harappan seal.
For us, the Peepul Tree with its wide arms, rich foliage and dancing heart-shaped leaves, is also a symbol of India’s cultural heritage. Diverse, rich, nurturing and inspirational. That is why we have chosen it to represent an initiative that brings together some of India’s finest artisans – to tell their story, celebrate their art and allow you to own a part of it.
