Economic Potential of Handicrafts of Jammu and Kashmir

Ishfaq Ahmad Bhat [2]


Abstract: Handicraft activities occupy an important position in the economic structure of J & K State. Being environment friendly, these activities are best suited to the state as they are more labour intensive and less capital intensive in nature, therefore having scope for employment generation at a large scale. The Kashmir handicraft products have earned worldwide fame for their attractive designs, functional utility and high quality craftsmanship. In absence of other manufacturing industries in the state, handicrafts remained a key economic activity from time immemorial. The present study focuses on the potential of handicrafts of the state of Jammu and Kashmir and analyses its various aspects.
