This product is an innovative blend of fine thread work and the melodious sound of the bell. The bells are made from iron sheets coated in a copper alloy. The inside has a wooden part that rings the bell. It hangs from a strap that has been finely embroidered and has mirrors.
These bells, originally used by shepherds to locate the grazing cattle, can now be used for home décor, door bells, etc. They are handcrafted by artisans in the Kutch region of India. Both men and women participate in the process of making the bell, which consists of different steps. The artisans receive a fair wage for their work, and are given development opportunities to help raise their communities above poverty.
