These products, mostly specific to a geography or a region having a national and international appeal are made across India from Kashmir to Kanyakumari, Assam to Kutch, showcasing the diversity and richness of Indian culture.

The country is fortunate enough to possess some highly skilled artisans who have nurtured these art forms for centuries. They have increased the fame of Indian handicrafts around the globe. Many rural people still earn their livelihood from their creative pieces of art. India is a manufacturing hub of varied kinds of handicrafts, which are popular even in international markets.
