Local smiths of Kullu make various articles of every day use.
These smiths preserve their traditional craft, unaffected by the
modern development. This art is carried on as a family occupation
since ages and continues on a small scale.
Despite their small scale production, they fully cater to the
basic need of the rurals. They make household articles as ladles,
spoons, tongs, pans, wooden stoves and agricultural implements
as sickle, shovel etc.
used for making these articles are aluminum, corrugated iron,
brass or any combinations of these. To create these households
the metals are heated on the hearth, cast, beaten and even carved
with beautiful designs.
There are small shops in most of the villages or on the roadsides
that deal in these household articles. Some of these shops are
located in Patlikuhl and Sarwari bazaars of Kullu.
