Hand embossed and painted sheep skin leather accessories – something special for everyday use


Embossed Leather or Shanti Leather

Embossed leather work on goatskin has been a specialty of West Bengal since 1940s. It is said that it was Tagore’s daughter-in-law who brought this legendary art of embossing to Bengal from Java. It was in the 1980’s, Sasha revived this craft unique to Shantiniketan and helped disseminate the skill other parts of Bengal.

Naturally tanned sheep skin is dampened and then embossed with a metal block. This is individually hand coloured by skilled artisans and then made up into different products.
