The Balady Box is a celebration of Yemeni art, culture, and the tradition of burning bukhoor.
**PLEASE READ CAREFULLY** Inside the Balady Box you will find everything you need for a bukhoor session, including:
- Sa'ada Mabkhara: These incense burners are handcrafted from natural soapstone carved out of the mountains of Razih in Sa’ada. These mabkharas will spark curiosity and admiration and look beautiful during a burning session. Because these are handmade by people (and not by machines), there will be some variation in their sizes (approx 6"x4") and designs. Consider it an extremely rare, one-of-a-kind piece! ($58)
Surprise Ma'waz - These ma'waz textiles are individually designed and hand-loomed by artisans in Lahj who inherited the craft from their ancestors. Traditionally, Yemeni men wear ma'waz as wraparound skirts. You can wear it traditionally by wrapping it around the waist, use it as a shawl, or decoratively draped across your bed or couch for a cultured touch. Size: 77"x 44" Please note: each Ma’waz varies in color and style, consider it a rare, one-of-a-kind piece! ($105)
Fatima Bukhoor Incense Blend ($37) OR Zuleika Incense Blend ($47)
Reusable mica plates: In Japan, mica sheets have been used to heat incense rather than burn it for hundreds of years. Using tongs, carefully place the mica plates on freshly lit charcoal with a thin layer of white ash. This will gently raise the temperature of the incense so that you can enjoy a beautiful, clean aroma. Hand Wash mica plates with cool water to reuse. Set includes 3 mica plates. ($5)
- Charcoal: 10 fast lighting incense burning charcoal. 33mm. ($4) NOT INCLUDED IN INTERNATIONAL SHIPMENTS
- PLEASE NOTE - Tongs shown are no longer in stock. A $6 discount will be discounted at checkout for the tongs shown. In April 2023 we will stock vintage brass tongs in the Balady Box.

This is the best bakhoor I have ever experienced and have tried some from around the world. I got a box for myself and gifted one as a house warming present. There is so much care in the packaging, presentation, and story. It feels precious and makes the perfect gift or treat to yourself.
