Himachal has a rich heritage of handicrafts. These include woollen and pashmina shawls, carpets, silver and metalware, embroidered chappals, grass shoes, Kangra and Gompa style paintings, woodwork, horse-hair bangles, wooden and metal utensils and various other household items. These aesthetic and tasteful handicrafts declined under competition from machine-made goods and also because of lack of marketing facilities. But now the demand for handicrafts has increased within and outside the country.
