Popular across India are leather slippers made at Dadra and Nagar Haveli that are known for their patterns, designs and sturdiness. The skilled artists of Silvassa are involved in creating numerous utilitarian and decorative items from leather, of which, footwear is the most popular. The artists treat locally available hide with water, latex and lime. To add a red tint to the leather, the artists make use of babul trees. The hide is stitched like a bag and a solution is filled in it. The stitches are untied after three to four days and the leather which is obtained is used in creating a range of articles like mojdis, sapats, bags, fans, bells, mirror frames, wallets and beautiful cushion covers.
