Meet the Artisans
Handmade by fair trade artisans. The artists are paid decent wages for their work. Due to consecutive droughts over the years, cattle breeders no longer buy bells on a regular basis and the demand for traditional bell making was on the verge of dying. With the help of fair trade and mission-based organizations, at least 1,000 village artisans in the desert Kutch region are repositioning this art form and earning sustainable livelihoods by selling the bells internationally.
