Goa

State: 

This tiny state in the south western Indian coast is also a home to varying handicrafts.It can be said that art virtually runs in Goa's blood, which is manifested, in many artistic crafts that have attained commercial proportions.

The major art forms of Goa include bamboo craft, woodcarving, brass metals, seashell craft, Papier-Mache, and wooden lacquer ware. Other important crafts of the state include Jute Macrame, Fabric Collage, Plaster of Paris, Crochet and embroidery, fiber and Batik prints, fiber stone carving, Coconut shell carving, metal embossing, silver and imitation jewelry, cotton dolls, soft toys, woolen tapestry, and artistic weaving.

The handicraft emporium, Taksha emporium and Goa handicrafts in Panji are self explanatory about their skill.
