Abstract

This paper is about the artisans who make their living creating and manufacturing small handicraft items with very less capital investment. The paper throws light on the capital investment made by the artisans and the competition they are facing in the market for their product. The paper stresses on the impact of duplicate hand crafted items that are available in the market at a very inferior price and quality which poses a threat to the market of original hand crafted items. A sample of 40 artisans is interviewed for collecting data for this study. The area covered was Bangalore urban district during October and November of 2016.
