History of the craft…

 

Every thing has a history ,there is always something which initiates a craft work.

Sriniketan near Shantiniketan in West Bengal was the place where these handcrafted leather products were introduced. About 80 years ago the productivity of this craft was started as a cottage industry.There was a university in Shantiniketan named Visva Bharti University in which craftsmen  from the villages  were trained under the rural development programme.

My next post will tell you about the making process of this craft , stay tuned.
