Leather Products (Kanpur Nagar)
Kanpur city is the largest center of the leather industry in the country. In the British period, the presence of a large number of troops in the region created a natural demand for various leather products. Even before the establishment of factories leather goods were manufactured by the village craftsman as a cottage industry which used to meet the local demand for carriage, harness, saddlers, and pots. A variety of leather products like footwear, belts, purses, slippers, garments, saddles are made here.
