Metalwork has been practiced in India for ages. Brass & Copper have been the popular metals to be worked by hand. Steel is a recent entrant. It is something which has been brought into the repertoire of the Indian artisan only in recent years. We have a selection of finely crafted handmade steel home accessories – dining & serving options from the metal cluster of India – Moradabad. The steel used is high grade steel with high corrosion resistance.
