Embossed Leather - Passport Holders

DAN26BR1

Embossed Leather Passport Holders. Embossed Leather Craft from West Bengal originated in Shantiniketan. The craft was initiated to the village cluster through Kala Bhavan, the Department of Fine Arts section at the Viswabharati University. It was Rabindranath Tagore who had invited Batik artists from Java, Indonesia, to introduce the technique in India. In its initial phase Leather Embossing was restricted only to Batik on leather. However, over time, the craftsmen of the cluster have diversified into embossing designs on leather and then doing Batik on it. The process of embossing entails softening the leather, embossing the designs through dies, and finally dyeing the product.
