  • CRAFT TECHNIQUE: Leather Work - in Kutch, Gujarat...

     

    IN KUTCH (Gujarat, India) Leather Work was earlier on a partnership between the Maldharis (nomadic pastoralist) experts in tanning, and the Dalit Meghwals (leather, stitching and embroidery craftsmen) migrants from Rajasthan.

     

    LEATHER WORK was traditionally used to make harnesses for camels and horses, musical instruments, storage containers and footwear, once the local leather was very good, durable and even resistant to water. In our days, Kutch Leather Work is a means of business and livelihood for many villages in the region.
