Their technique of lost wax casting is named after their tribe, hence Dokra metal casting. This sort of metal casting has been used in India for over 4,000 years and is still used. Dokra Damar tribes are the traditional metalsmiths of West Bengal.  The tribe extends from Jharkhand to West Bengal and Orissa; A few hundred years ago the Dhokras of Central and Eastern India traveled south as far as Kerla and north as far as Rajasthan and hence are now found all over India. Dokra is non-ferrous metal casting using the lost wax casting technique.
