Handicraft refers to handmade products created using traditional skills and techniques, often emphasizing artistic or decorative qualities. They are typically created by skilled artisans and reflect the cultural heritage and craftsmanship of a particular region or community. They are often valued for their unique and authentic qualities, as well as their aesthetic appeal. Sculptures, pottery, woodware, scarves, toys, imitation jewelry, crocheted goods, furniture, and glassware are commonly available handicraft products. They are generally manufactured using materials, such as sheet metals, wood, natural fibers, papers, textiles, wrought iron, ceramics, beads, horns, bones, and river stones. Handicrafts are widely used for gift-giving, or decoration, such as paintings or sculptures. They are often sold as souvenirs, gifts, or collectibles and can be found in local markets, craft fairs, and online platforms.
