Name on Rice first originated in India as a form of art. Miniature artists back then transferred their skills in art into writings on grains of rice which was considered as an ancient symbol of prosperity. Hence, Name on Rice has been considered to bring good luck to its owner. Anyone could do with a bit of luck for their daily activities, don't they?
Besides its meaning behind the art, i myself liked to do miniature art which requires a lot of focus and stability on my hands to write names on grains of rice. It's always a joy to make these little trinkets for people to admire.
