The talented artisans at Johra & Bohra Handicrafts specialize in wrapped wire and metal craft, creating a wide range of products, including our popular wrapped wire Snowmen, Birds, and Angels. Khalil Ahmed, the business owner, started this venture out of necessity 8 years ago with his three brothers. After partnering with a local NGO and embracing fair trade principles, Khalil has since been able to provide steady work, fair wages, and good working conditions for his 10 employees.
How It's Made: The process of making wrapped wire products starts with a metal form that is soldered together by the artisans. Once the form is approved, the artisans wrap the wire around the frame to create the desired shape and final product. Each piece can be dipped in various colors to create vibrant and unique decor items.
In addition to our wrapped wire products, these artisans also make our best-selling Flex Bowls. Their skilled hands wrap the wire and bend metal to form flexible bowls, perfect for holding fruits, cookies, breads, and more.
