See the world in a whole new way! Our handmade kaleidoscope provides a dazzling experience combining science and artistry. It is fair-trade imported through a non-profit organization dedicated to providing a stable and gainful source of employment for underprivileged artisans in Bangladesh.
Invented in the early nineteenth century, kaleidoscopes contain pieces of glass that are reflected by mirrors set at different angles to create various symmetrical patterns when viewed through one end of the tube. The name kaleidoscope comes from Greek, meaning "beautiful form to see."
