All you need is love and lime for a festive set of tequila glasses with a story and purpose worth sharing. Stone carvers in Pakistan adapt their traditional skills to sculpt pink salt from the Himalayan foothills. Not dishwasher safe. Because these shot glasses are carved from 100% salt, they will erode with prolonged exposure to liquids. Salt naturally contains anti-bacterial properties. To clean, rinse with water and wipe with a fresh, dry cloth. Store in a clean, dry place.
