Medium-sized leather goods can be sewn in one day, but raw hides for preparation can take up to a month and require a lot of effort. Both men and women are in the leather industry. Men do tanning, cutting and sewing, while women do decoration and embroidery. The result is a durable leather that will last for years.
The history of handicrafts in Rajasthan has its roots in ancient India. There are many references to the use of animal skins in ancient literature and mythology. Ancient saints and monks sat on deer skins while meditating. The use of hides first began when humans hunted wild animals for food. The use of hides to make clothes and other items became possible after food needs were met. The hides of cows and deer were used to make clothes and shoes.
