It is important to understand that typically, salt products are produced in temporary garage-type workshops, where working conditions leave a lot to be desired, even by Pakistani standards. These garage-shops are often set up just to fill a few containers, offering only temporary employment. Quality standards are difficult, if not impossible, to maintain in such an environment. Nowadays, many Pakistani nationals are trying to make a "quick buck" selling low-priced salt lamps from these workshops. They are essentially middle men, not factory owners, brokering deals and paying the very least possible for the product and to their employees. In Tariq's factory, employment is year-round. This also guarantees consistent quality, because the sculpting of the lamps and holders is a delicate procedure.
Crafting of the Salt Candle Holders
| ||Aloha Bay started importing Himalayan salt products from Pakistan fifteen years ago. For several years already, friend and longtime candle maker Volker Wagner had been working together with a Pakistani architect and businessman, Tariq Khokhar, to create salt products for the European market. Tariq designed and built a small state-of-the-art salt factory in Mirpur, close to the Himalayan foothills. This family-owned factory, which produces both decorative salt lamps, salt candle holders, and edible salt, is both technically advanced and socially and environmentally responsible.|
Take our salt tea light and votive candle holders, for example; they are carefully shaped in a pleasing round design, whereas most of our competition only offers a rough salt rock with a hole. Continue reading this month's feature article.

Grey Himalayan Salt Lamps - new! - Mined from ultra-rare veins of grey salt in the foothills of the Himalayan mountains, the grey color is due in part to traces of two semi-precious stones: sodalite (blue-grey) and schorlomite (grey or black - a special kind of garnet), and magnesium (20 times more than pink salt). Choose from among the Mini Lamp, Diamond Lamp, Teardrop Lamp, Aroma Lamp, and USB Lamp.
