Traditional industries and handicrafts still play an important role in the economy of all Asian countries. Not only do they constitute major production and trade activities by themselves, but they are often the only available means of providing employment and raising the standard of living for the rural and urban population. Due to the ever-increasing growth of the global markets for the products of Asian traditional industries and Asian handicrafts, there is a significant place. During the 1990s, significant improvements were made in the marketing of these products in rich countries.
Central Asia is rich in traditional handicrafts. Ancient techniques can be seen both in small private workshops and in larger modern factories. Handicraft centers are located in different areas of the region and as a special experience they can be well added to any type of tour. At the same time, a special craft enthusiast tour is sure to pass the main historical and architectural sites, so travelers can see the "musts" as well. Local workshops and artisans offer many options for master classes that can be added to any trip.
Handicrafts in East Asia, especially in India and China, like other corners of the mysterious history of this land, are a mixture of ambiguity and mystery. Extensive research by historians and researchers regarding the origin and origin of these arts in East Asia has not yielded much documented results and most of them have limited themselves to mentioning their possibilities and guesses. Many Asian historians and artists believe that this art first appeared in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh and spread to other parts of Asia, including China.
