In Sri Lanka, for a very long time, no attempt was made to convert leather-work into commercially viable products. Organised leather-work began with the establishment of the tanning industry in Sri Lanka, close to the beginning of the last century. Leather craft has finally gained momentum due to its earning potential. The Leather Products Corporation, a government body, has contributed a lot to the growth of this craft. There is a great local demand for leather goods, chiefly utilitarian articles for daily use, and decorative pieces.
