Color Palette for the GLOBAL Market

Unusually-neat wooden Salt & Pepper dispensers, hand-crafted in the village of Channapatna - meant to be sold in the U.S.
The difference between these and the ones crafted for the local market? A matt and neat finish. A bright/fruity color palette [similar to the "garden" swatch palette in Illustrator CS2 if i remember correctly]... And the price-tag of course.

Notions such as "Craft Revival", Local empowerment, globalization, profit and explotation float in my head randomly.
