Tambats, are a community of Copper Smiths that came and settled in the Pune city in the state of Maharashtra in India. Tamba means copper in Marathi and hence the name Tambats. Tambats make copper goods by a traditional method of hand hammering a copper sheet. Working with copper sheets by hand is a work of patience and craft. Tambats traditionally made items used in war, like swords, shields and ammunition. Today, Tambats make products for modern homes like planters, coasters, trays etc.
