Bone and Wood Community

Location of the community: Shambhal & Amroha

Name of the local entrepreneur/NGO/master craftsman: Amit Kumar

Number of artisans: 7

About the group:

Sambhal, in Uttar Pradesh, India is famous for bone and horn handicrafts. Both horn and bone have been used since the earliest times in the manufacture of small items such as beakers, jugs, caskets and snuff boxes, with bone often cut into strips and engraved to provide decorative edging, or turned and carved for feet on boxes and mirrors. The inherent grain and colour variations in bone enable the craftsperson to exploit his creative instinct to a distinct advantage. Bone, though hard, becomes pliable when heated and oiled. Finely crafted handicrafts like bracelets, bangles, necklaces, coaster plates, etc. are made out of bone and horn by the artisans. The attractive goods generated by these artisans are in great demand in many countries.

CFM Market Linkages is promoting a local entrepreneur Amit Kumar, who works with 7 skilled artisans in Sambhal. CFM Market Linkages provides design inputs which are converted into final products by the artisans.
