Rice writing is an ancient tradition originating in Anatolia (largely Turkey today). Rice is a staple food in many cultures and traditions link it to prosperity, health, fertility and good fortune. The more rice you have the more prosperous you are and in some cultures rice not gold is considered a symbol of wealth. Many believe that rice is a link between mankind and the Earth itself, rice being the gift of the Mother Earth (Goddess) to her offspring (Man) so that he may eat and sustain himself.
Each grain of rice is sealed in a strong glass vial in clear liquid with a steel cap on a spiral keyring*. The maximum number of rice grains in a single vial is 2, the maximum number of characters on a single word is 7 (spaces and puctuation marks constitute a character), the maximum number of words on one grain of rice is 2 (total 4 words on 2 grains). If we have any questions with your order we will contact you prior to completion.
NB. PLEASE NOTE THAT SPACES AND PUNCTUATION MARKS CONSTITUTE A CHARACTER.
You can also choose a card to present your rice vial on. Your keyring will be sent to you in a small white box for safe postage and when you receive it you can simply fix it to the card by feeding the glass vial through the hole in the card. The card is a 100% recycled Made in England art card (with matching envelope) and the receiver can detach the keyring to use. The card is available with a heart on or plain, it is blank inside and has an explanation of the rice item on the back.
The rice vial is presented in a white organza drawstring bag in a small gift box with our I THINK YOU ARE GORGEOUS postcard.
