Hanging Sari and Bell Chime - Small

$ 27.00

This darling bell chime combines the bright, cheerful look of upcycled sari fabric and gold tassels with the delicate chime of two handmade bells. The bells are crafted from recycled iron sheets, which are covered in copper alloys. No rivets or nails are used for fixing the various components together. Its raw, rustic texture adds to the appeal. 

Bell-making is an ancient Indian craft with enchanting origins. Traditionally used by farmers to identify their livestock, each bell is tuned to produce a distinctive chime. Creating music from lifeless metal, bell-making in India uses craftsmanship passed down through generations.

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.
