Embossed Leather

Vegetable Tanned, Hand Embossed Leather

Embossed leather products are made using vegetable tanned goatskin leather. Every piece is embossed using a metal die, after which it is individually painted by hand using spirit colors. Each product is then constructed by hand. The craft person’s meticulous eye for detail makes every product unique. As the leather is used, the colors become deeper and the leather softer until it becomes an integral part of your life.

Examples of Embossed Leather

A Specialty of West Bengal Since the 1940's

Embossed leather work on goatskin has been a specialty of West Bengal since 1940’s. It is said that it was Rabindranath 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.

It was Sasha’s sustained effort in design & product development, technical and skill up-gradation, quality control and, most importantly, vigorous promotion & marketing drive that expanded the scope of this craft and created greater employment opportunities for the goatskin.
