Himachal Pradesh

Arts And Crafts

The Himachalis in general have a great sense of art. They express it in their objects, including object of daily use such as utensils and so on. Attractive utensils, idols, silver jewellery, the unglazed earthenware of Kangra, embroidered shawls and other garments which portray both classical and simple folk styles and designs, and traditional jewellery for almost all conceivable uses, are some of their popular crafts.

Weaving of wool is a major cottage industry itself. The wool products are made of the Byangi wool. The highlanders of Lahaul-Spiti and Kinnaur weave dresses from it for special occasions such as festivals and weddings.
