Why are Dokra (bell metal casting) products considered so unique?
Dokra art goes back thousands of years and is part of the cultural heritage of specific indigenous communities of Jharkhand, West Bengal, Chhattisgarh and Orissa. The art involves various intricate processes and is entirely handcrafted without the use of any advanced technology. The quality and design of each artifact depends on the level of skill, imagination and creativity of the artisan.
The cool fact about Dokra is that no two objects are the same. In this age of machine made perfection, the very beauty and uniqueness of Dokra lies in its imperfections.
