Leather craft forms an integral part of the Kutch culture, being practised here for generations. The roots of this craft date back to the Marwada Meghwal community known for leather craft, that migrated from Sindh and Rajasthan to Kutch. Working closely with the cattle herders of Kutch (the Maldhari community), they slowly spread their wings, supplying leather products to the residents of the area. Social barriers nearly led to the extinction of this wonderful craft. Most of the artisans quit, looking for other forms of employment.
