Our Hotei Travel Pocket Charm is lovingly hand crafted by Master Artisan, Matthew Taylor. You will fall head over heels for this happy bundle of Buddha love! We certainly did! Hotei is well known in eastern and western cultures as the enlightened, loving and jolly, traveling mystic, laughing Buddha.
Hotei (also known as Pu-tai in China) means cotton or hempen sack. He carries a sack full of wonderful goodies and sweets for children and represents happiness, generosity, and wealth. He is the protector of children, the poor and the weak.
Hotei Buddha is a hefty nugget of solid sterling silver and measures 25mm. Each charm includes a beautiful Diamond, hand selected for its brilliant color, that provides Hotei some ‘Buddha-ful’ belly bling!
