Onsite preparation of glass bangles has become a major attraction at Sheesh Mahal during the ongoing Crafts Mela. A Delhi-based family which is in the business since 66 years is selling jointless bangles.

Humayun, son of Haji Mohammad Yamin, a resident of Sangam Vihar, Delhi, who had started the bangle business, said, “My father (74), is making bangles since he was eight-year-old. In 2010, we came out with a special design for Michelle Obama, former first lady of the United States.”

He also showed a photograph of his father along with Patiala MP Preneet Kaur.

“Our bangles are made of glass and are without joint,” he said. “We put glass into a tank furnace, which has a temperature of 1,300 degree Celsius. Glass is completely melted and then given a shape.”

Humayun and his elder brother Babar along with their father sell glass bangles priced between Rs 60 and Rs 120 per piece. Humayun showcases their bangle-making craft to the visitors after 4 pm every day.
