Story Behind the Art:
The workshop buys sheets of scrap metal from dealers who collect it door-to-door. But don't let that make you doubt the quality of their handicrafts; they ensure the scrap comes from acceptable material and transforms the trash into beautiful art. The artisans specialize in a particular type of finishing known as "Rasai". This is when a layer of brass is added to the wrought iron to give the products a rustic and crude appearance.

Due to the handmade nature, slight variations in size, color, shape, pattern, or other characteristics may be evident. Each piece is truly a unique work of art, lovingly crafted by hand.
