Indian Handicraft Industry

A diverse country with rich culture, history and traditions, India reflects its true colors of art and heritage through its handicrafts products. One of the major producers and suppliers of Handicrafts products in the world, India counts for a strong labor intensive cottage based industry that is spread in rural as well as urban areas. Still unexplored from its potential areas, Indian handicraft industry highlights three major aspects:  
  • Low capital investment
  • High ratio of value addition
  • High potential for export and foreign exchange earnings
  Every state of India offers a different variety of handicrafts to meet the global demands. Some of the major centers of handicraft production in India are:

  Each major hub of handicrafts utilizes a unique medium to express its originality. From textiles to wood, from ceramic and glass to metals and stones, India offers a plethora of options that have now formed a key industry at the global platform. A brief overview of the types of Indian handicrafts is as under:  
  • Statues and idols: Intricate carvings of Gods and Goddesses in material like marble, brass, mud, lak, wooden and terracotta.

This has explored the unorganized as well as organized sectors of the Indian handicrafts industry and brought about an economic uplift in the country’s earnings.
