Copper Coated Wind Chimes

Filter
    The unique melodic tones that emanate from Kachchh metal bells give voice to a centuries-old craft tradition that the Lohar community brought to Kachchh from Sindh, Pakistan. These metal bells, burnished in copper and brass, have long adorned the necks of the cattle, camels, sheep and goats that graze in Kachchh arid plains. The bells signify each animal’s status and position in the herd. Today, the use of Kachchh traditional bells has expanded; they hang in entrance ways, are combined with metal frames to create wind chimes, are finely tuned to become musical instruments, and are used as other forms of festive decoration.
