Made of high quality metal bell with copper coating, along with a few other metals. The unique melodic tones that emanate from Kachchh’s metal bells give voice to a centuries-old craft tradition that the Lohar community brought to Kachchh from Sindh. Today, the use of Kachchh’s traditional bells has expanded; they hang in entrance way are combined to make wind chimes, and are used as other forms of festive decoration.
It is recommend to keep the product away from water. Wash the product with Pitambari Powder/lemon to remove the dark spots. Copper coating would age to rusty look with time.

Luhar Janmamad Salemamad
Janmamad is a highly skilled artisan of the Copper Coated Bell craft. He grasped the skills from his father very early on in his childhood and formally joined the family craft business when he turned 18. Janmamad has always been enthusiastic to create traditional crafts and was one of the first people of his community to promote the craft to Development Commissioner (Handicrafts) and Gujarat State Handloom and Handicrafts Development Corporation (GSH&HDC). This gave the community access to government sponsored exhibitions. He also initiated the process to form a cooperative called “Shree Zura Luharikam Audhyogic Sahkari Mandli Ltd.” Today, it is a registered cooperative with 55 artisan members. Janmamad is dedicated to developing meaningful livelihoods for his community out of their traditional crafts, striving to take his craft to new markets.
