India's Kolhapuri chappal gets Geographical Indication tag

India
Maharashtra's footwear brand Kolhapuri chappal recently bagged the Geographical Indication (GI) tag, The development implies artisans producing Kolhapuris in Kolhapur, Solapur, Sangli and Satara districts of Maharashtra and Dharwad, Belgaum, Bagalkot and Bijapur districts of Karnataka can now make and market their products in domestic and global markets.

The artisans can tie up with top e-commerce players for more profit and the GI tag will also help them tackle illegal imitations of the footwear brand, according to Indian media reports.

These hand-crafted leather footwear are tanned using vegetable dyes. The artisans engaged in making these chappals have passed their trade secrets and skills from one generation to another. (DS)
