Karnataka State Handicrafts Development Corporation Limited in collaboration with Regional Design and Technical Development Centre, Bangalore has started training the artists across State for making use of natural raw materials. The nature friendly products are in huge demand in domestic as well as global market and adopting this method will help them increase the sale.
