Brass Kabal
We have started a new initiative to purchase and courier goods that you will want from Chennai and from India. However, courier charges are high for small parcels so the order should be about 6 kgs.
And 11kgs even better. For smaller orders you will have to share with others. We will send our first parcel in a few day’s time so please send me your orders. One of the orders was this brass kabalam for a client in Verulam. Apparently it is used during the Kali prayers.
