Tinned Surya Salt
A solar-powered, earth-filtered and hand-pounded salt harvested by the Agariya community, a tribe that has been working in the salt district of Gujarat, India for generations.
Using solar pumps, the Agariyas harvest this bright, inland salt from the desert’s underground water table. The salt’s high-mineral content is preserved through a slow-filtration process through the desert soil. In partnership with a local women's self-help group, whose members then hand-pound the salt to the perfect texture for everyday use, we are able to ensure that the salt retains as much flavor as possible.
