It can be traced back to the Indus Valley civilization and is considered popular because of its wide usage, cultural connectivity, and folk charisma.

Living Tradition Arts & Crafts: Folk and Tribal

Our Arts & Crafts Consultants are always on hand to answer questions about what products are best for your project. We also offer workshops and a small gallery for our customers to see the work.

Our Master Artisans

Dokra has historically been associated with the tribal culture of India. Its hub for many centuries was in the metal-rich region of Central-East India. But it is now restricted to a small number of groups of traditional artisans in widely dispersed locations. One significant nucleus of this craft exists among related group of families in Bikna Village (Bankura) and nearby Dariapur Village (Burdwan), in West Bengal.
