Woven Leather and Iron Bench (India)
Story Behind the Art:This product was created in a region near the India/Pakistan border. When the British Army removed from the region in the late 1940s, most of the industries that made the local economy went with them. The indigenous people returned to the traditional crafts that they had known for generations. Several hub cities of industry have flourished, creating numerous, sustainable, and stable jobs for the people of the surrounding villages, helping in the time between harsh growing seasons. These industries form a valuable alternative means of providing for families, especially for women in the area. Profits from these workshops have created an unprecedented number of schools, hospitals and infrastructure improvements in the area. This industry has truly created an economic renaissance in the region.
