If you want to see kite-making in India, using traditional methods, please come to Hyderabad. These fighter kite designs come in a range of types and sizes. Paper quality varies too, so all these factors result in a price range from 5 up to 100 Rupees per kite - at my shop anyway.

We also provide threads and manjah (abrasive) for flying line. The last photo shows how we store the lines.
