The  hides  of  dead  animals  is  used  by  skilled  cobblers  for  Jooties (foot-wear), chairs, musical instruments, mojaries, etc. The  Jooties  reflect  the  unique  style  of  every  district  they  belong  to. It  is  amazing how  the leather is  beaten, tanned and dyed  and put to the best use. The leather is punched and gouged  to create patterns, studded, sequined and even  embroidered  with  woolen motifs. Cities  like  Jaipur, Jodhpur, Barmer, Jaisalmer  is famous for  Jooties, musical instruments (like Tabla, Dhol, Dhapli), stringed instruments (Kamayacha) made out of leather. Bikaner is best  known  for painted Lampshades, shields, vases, Mojharies made out of camel hide. Hard Bag, belts, hats, chairs, foldable chairs with graphic embroideries are from Tilonia.
