Ancient Indian bell craft is practiced by the Lohars in the Kutch region. The bells are made of recycled iron and coated primarily with copper, along with a few other metals, through a casting process. A wooden or metal ringer is attached to each bell for the distinctive sound. The bells are hammered by hand and the metal parts are connected through a locking system, without using any kind of welding.
