Handicraft tradition in India

India’s multi layered cultural heritage provides a truly spectacular and awe-inspiring range of handicrafts. Tribal communities across India create an amazing variety of handicrafts & textiles from available sources in their surroundings. Temples and historical monuments have preserved metalwork, granite & marble stone carvings and paintings. Jewellers, potters, carpenters, sculptors, painters, coppersmiths & blacksmiths work on their respective skills & professions even today. Skills are passed down generations.
