The skill development training, imparted by Footwear Design & Development Institute (FDDI) at its ‘Training Workshop on Leather Goods Making’ at Bishnah, Jammu has yielded desired outcome.

The training workshop was free of cost for the youth of Bishnah, Jammu, during which 50 trainees consisting of 49 females and one male underwent the training programme which had commenced from 02nd August, 2021.


During the training workshop, the local youth were taught about new designs & techniques of making day to day products like ladies handbag, jhola/shopping bag, ladies belt, photo frames, ladies wallet, mobile cases using embroidery and incorporating leather & textile.


As embroidery demonstrates the legacy of Jammu & Kashmir, in this respect, types of stitches were taught to the participants on leather & fabrics.


The training workshop was successfully completed on 03rd September 2021. On completion of the training workshop, a jury session was organized in the presence of Mr. Rajan Sharma, Chairman of Municipal Committee and Mr. Ramesh Lal, Vice-Chairman of Municipal Committee of Bishnah along with Mr. M.R Puri, Secretary - Sat Guru Mandir Working Committee, Bishnah.


The jury members met with all the trainees and inspected the products which have been made by them. They appreciated/praised all the trainees for the products made by them. Lastly, the programme ended with a distribution ceremony of certificates by Mr. Ramesh Lal, Vice-Chairman of Municipal Committee Bishnah and Mr. M.R Puri, Secretary-Sat Guru Kabir Mandir Working Committee.

During the ‘Certificates Distribution Ceremony’, the dignitaries appreciated the efforts of FDDI for organizing the training workshop on making Leather Goods products and requested to start more training workshops in Jammu & Kashmir.


The stepping stone towards self-dependent which fulfils the goals of Hon’ble Prime Minister’s ‘Vocal for Local’, ‘Make in India’ & ‘Aatmanirbhar Bharat’ is evident as the trainees are able of generating new product ideas using fusion of traditional crafts and leather.
