Sometimes, customers come up with some designs and ask us, can you able to make such a mirror to us? What kind of waiting period would be there? How much cost it should have?
First of all, we have to understand that, aranmula metal mirrors have a tradition, history and many stories behind it. though it comes in different models, there are lot of hidden facts behind it. you can’t make any random model mirror as such. every mirror having its own specialities, dimension, proportion etc.
Each mirror is built from scratch locally. it has three categories, hand mirror, backstand and fixed stand. the modes are designed with lot of facts and considerations, once we make a mould, it can produce 80 – 100 mirrors sometimes 120 or maximum 140 mirrors. after that that wont be able to use again. making a mould or frame is a time taking and costly affair. it costs 10 times of the cost of a mirror, when a new mirror makes.
so we suggest you to choose from the models if you are looking for less numbers and less amount. if you really looking for a minimal number ( say 50 Nos), probably going for a new design worth it.
The biggest custom model aranmula metal mirror was made for the king of baharin, and it costs around 12 Lakhs for the mirror. and it took almost 3 months to make it .
