Handicrafts and decorative


India being one of the most important suppliers of handicrafts and decorative in the world market, the industry in the country is mostly labor intensive and cottage based. The handicraft sector involves an important part of Indian economy and provides to over six million artisans in the country – including a large number of women and people belonging to the weaker sections of the society.

The definition of handicraft adopted by UNESCO-UNCTAD/WTO (ITC) at Manila in October 1997 is, “Artisanal products are those produced by artisans, either completely by hand or with the help of hand tools or even mechanical means, as long as the direct manual contribution of the artisan remains the most substantial component of the finished product. The special nature of artisanal products derives from their distinctive features, which can be utilitarian, aesthetic, creative, culturally attractive, functional, traditional, religiously & socially symbolic and significant.”

One of the major significance of the handicraft and decorative sector in Indian economy is that it includes low capital investment, high ratio of value addition, and high potential for export and foreign exchange earnings. The sector comprises of more than 67,000 exporters or export houses promoting regional art and craftsmanship in the domestic and global markets.

The craft sector in the country can be majorly categorized into two fragments – articles for everyday use and decorative items. The diversities of the handicrafts and decorative products in India include textiles, metals, wood, precious and semi-precious stones, ceramic and glass. The artisans manufacturing handicrafts in rural or urban India inherit special talents with skill, technique and traditional craftsmanship.
