From our Vintage Collection - This Majestic tribal necklace hand crafted from bell metal displays the traditional and centuries old tribal design and motifs worn by the nomadic women of the Dhokra Damar tribe of Orissa , South of India.

Dhokra is an ancient folk art tradition prevalent in India in the eastern states of West Bengal, Odisha, Jharkhand and Chhattisgarh where such exquisite products are made through the process of non-ferrous metal casting using the centuries old lost-wax casting technique.                                                                                                             
The name Dokra or Dhokra was used to indicate a group of craftsmen of nomadic type from the Dhokra Damar tribe, scattered over the regions of Bengal, Orissa and Madhya Pradesh, whose wares were identified by their beautifully shaped and decorated metal products inspired by indigenous folk culture and are characterised by a primitive, instinctive style.
