Description

Andhra, like so much of India has had multiple influences in the area of arts and crafts, be it handloom weaving techniques or metal crafts, paintings or toy making. The crafts have been influenced by the material available locally or the skills learnt from traders or visitors to the area. Most of them flourished due to the encouragement received from the kings and noblemen of the time. This Detour would give us a glimpse of some of the main crafts of the region especially weaves like Ikkat, Himroo, Paithani and also metal crafts like Bidri and scroll paintings like Cherial.
