government will now conduct a research on the industry and also start the process of obtaining a patent The Maharashtra state Khadi and Village Industries board is also planning to explore the online market to take Maharashtra’s most iconic brand — the handcrafted Kolhapuri chappals — to global buyers The state conducted a workshop for artisans and those producing Kolhapuri chappals for the first time on May 5 to understand the problems faced by them State minister for industries Subhash Desai told The Indian Express that getting a patent will elevate the brand value of the industry “It is time the chappal makers and artisans need to adopt new technology There is a need to take this art to the next level need to make the chappals more soft to attract more buyers It is sad to see that the chappal makers have been struggling to keep the industry alive for the past few years We would do anything and everything to help them and the first move would be to get a patent A research on chappal making and how it can be taken ahead would be conducted by Shivaji University Kolhapur” he said The idea to hold a workshop was mooted by Maharashtra state Khadi and Village Industries board chairman Vishal Chordia “The state government is looking at reviving local and home- based businesses and we decided to start with Kolhapuri chappals This was the first time where artisans could directly interact with industry representatives In this manner we got to know problems faced by the artisans and they in turn found out about customers’ expectations from the product and demand” he said Kolhapuri chappals a home-based cottage industry worth around Rs 9 crore according to local manufacturers has been on the decline for years due to the colourful copy from the North and Karnataka the closure of local leather tanneries violating green norms and lack of interest in the product among the younger generation of buyers The tradition of making Kolhapuri chappals is passed down through generations Since the state government banned the slaughter of cow progeny extending to bulls and bullocks in 2015 the traditional industry has seen a dip by 50-60 per cent owing to the decline in the supply of good leather “As we are racing against time facing shortage of leather we also face another problem — the fake Kolhapuri market It is a much bigger problem We are the last generation of Kolhapuri chappal makers Our sons do not want to join us They feel that Kolhapuri chappals are out of fashion and nobody wants to buy them Hence there is no future” said Prakash Lokare (52) one of the artisans The bulk of the leather used for the slippers comes from tanneries in Tamil Nadu following the closure of local tanneries Still until 2015 hides sourced from Kolhapur formed around 15% to 20% of the market manufacturers claim The beef ban led to the reduction in supply which in turn pushed up prices “We have had almost 50-60 per cent drop in business since 2015 With no bullock hides in the market the price of buffalo leather has shot up from Rs 110 a kg last year to almost Rs 280 to Rs 300” said Lokare “We were able to make between 3000-4000 pairs of chappals every month till 2014-15 The number dropped to 2000 pairs in 2016 and is reducing even further this year” said Arun Satpute one of the major manufacturers in Kolhapur There are close to 10000 artisans in Kolhapur working at 100 odd units Around 3500 families are involved in the chappal-making business The profit margins for Lokare and Satpute’s workshop have shrunk from 40 per cent and 35 per cent a month to just 10-15 per cent the two claim Besides running his own outfit Satpute is also a member of the Kolhapur Charmadyog Audyogik Samooh Recently MP Dhananjay Mahadik raised the patent issue in the Parliament when the Footwear Design and Development Institute Bill 2017 was under discussion in April The chappal makers claim that patenting will help in brand placement across the globe especially since the makers provide good quality leather at a nominal cost Another chappal manufacturer Raghunath Satpute confesses that they are confronting a dying a legacy He said “The leather supplied to us is chemically processed and of poor quality The neighbouring Karnataka which also traditionally makes chappals is far ahead Our businesses would shut down soon Getting the Kolhapuri chappal design patented might bail us out and also attract the new generation to join us again” For all the latest Mumbai News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy: Express Web Desk | Hyderabad

Top NewsPublished: May 17 2016 12:01 am Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar (Express Photo by Prashant Ravi) Related News The murder of journalist Rajdeo Ranjan in Siwan last week on Friday night took place days after the murder in Gaya of young Aditya Sachdeva allegedly by the son of the now absconding JD(U) MLC Manorama Devi These aretwo separate incidents of crime joined together for now only in the BJP-led opposition’s clamour pronouncing the return of “jungle raj” in Nitish Kumar-ruled Bihar It may also be true that BJP-ruled states like Madhya Pradesh have a worse record onthe incidence of crime than Bihar Yet Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar would do well not to point fingers back at the BJP in his own defence He has already asked the Centre for a CBI investigation into the Siwan case but in this moment the Mahagathbandhan government that he leads needs to do all it can to send out the message to the people that the guilty will not be spared — whosoever they may be If the Gaya case involves the son of a politician of the ruling party now suspended by it the murder in Siwan has immediately touched off questions about whether or not the Mahagathbandhan government would summon the necessary political will to pursue the probe if it pointed too close to home Law and order has been — and among the people is still widely seen to be — the Nitish Kumar government’s biggest achievement in the state And nowhere has this been more starkly framed and put more to the test than in Siwan Here the abdication of the state during the Lalu years from its basic responsibility to ensure the security and safety of its citizens was most visible In Siwan the bahubali phenomenon the taking over by the strongman of the spaces vacated by the state who then ruled through fear and favour had a recognisable name The writ of Mohammad Shahabuddin also seen to be the “guardian” of the Muslim votebank ran above that of the law Though jailed in 2003 it was only after Nitish came to power in 2005 that the influence of the man convicted in eight cases and handed sentences ranging from one year to life imprisonment on charges including murder began to recede from public view In the November 2015 assembly polls however that achievement invited suspicions of a rollback Nitish had joined hands with Lalu Prasad’s RJD of which Shahabuddin is a prominent member And by all accounts Siwan’s “Saheb” had a decisive say in the selection of the Mahagathbandhan’s election candidates Now as a journalist known for his fearless political reporting is shot dead in Siwan the Nitish government must know that the onus of dispelling disbelief is on it How it conducts itself in Siwan — and in Gaya — will undoubtedly contribute towards shaping perceptions about whether or not the magnificent achievement of Nitish Raj 1 and 2 is seen to endure in Nitish 3 For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related News central sector or state government schemes
