Lanterns or diyas are a big part of Diwali. Handmade lanterns are unique. They add a personal touch. Here are five options in different materials and designs from our talented makers for your consideration to make your celebrations special.

Diyas and Diwali go hand in hand. Here is an interesting fact about Diwali:  It is a national holiday in India, Trinidad & Tobago, Myanmar, Nepal, Mauritius, Guyana, Singapore, Suriname, Malaysia, Sri Lanka and Fiji. And is an optional holiday in Pakistan.

Rangolis and diyas pair well. Here is a diya that has the personality of a Rangoli.


RANGOLI: A colourful way to spread the light of Diwali is this handmade and hand-painted lantern that’s equally good for the insides and outsides of your home.  


The word Diwali is derived from the Sanskrit word Deepavali – which means a row of lights, “deep” means Diya and “avali” means row. You probably knew that.

When you hang beautiful objects they infuse the atmosphere with art. Hanging lanterns are utility and decoration. They steer you to comfort zones. 


AIR LIGHT: VarEesha presents the ”Earthen Sparkle” to you, a collection of terracotta and wooden lamps, lanterns and diyas.

Candles are classic. They come with a modern twist or two. Candles in Vanilla, Coffee, Cinnamon, Citronella, Green Apple, and Mint are a few. All scents are suitably subtle, calibrated with care.   

CIRCLE CENTRE: Hand poured aroma candles that will light up the mood and ambience for any occasion. Sandalwood fragrance has many benefits. This is what Athena Shokunin says.

Baroque can be diya art too. Baroque is a look. Heavily decorated style in buildings, art, and music that was popular in Europe in the 17th century and the early part of the 18th century. Thus, is baroque. So is this.

PEACOCK PRIDE: Baroque and bold, strike out in a fancy way this Diwali in the light of this diya by Shubha’s Art. Graceful and stylish in manner. Tasteful, discerning, refined, sophisticated, too. A diya that is made with studied care is nourished by beautiful energies that are powerful and quiet. 


ELEGANTLY UNDERSTATED: Small and significantly designed with intricate embellishment. Suited in pastel. Exudes calm and gravitas. Diya the way of Urban Pattang.
