Abstract


Handicraft is handiwork done manually by local and traditional people, creating products using raw and indigenous materials. The peculiarity of this work is that, it takes a lot of time and concentration which is totally different and more elegant than machine work. Moreover, this artistic work requires painstaking efforts. This work is done mainly by hand and with the help of few tools. Mostly the artistic women, who are doing this work, get very meager wages by the middle man, and its exploitation of their work. Sindh is the land of artistic people it has an ancient civilization dating back to 5000 years. The culture, civilization and traditional workforce of Sindh have existed since pre-historic times. The purpose of this article is to highlight and introduce the handiwork done locally by domestic women in Tando Soomro, one of the villages of district Tandoallahyar, Sindh, Pakistan.
