The KANGRI remains an enduring emblem of local Kashmiri craftmanship that is eco-friendly ,cost effective  and  keeps people warm during the severe winter months when temperatures go as low as -20˚.

It is a clay fire pot that is filled with glowing charcoal embers encased in pretty handmade wicker baskets and carried as a personal warmer. It is  an effective and economical heating arrangement .
