We can see from the archaeological evidence the evolution of arts and crafts among civilizations of the Indus valley from 3000 B.C. to the past few hundred years. The lifestyles of the various peoples inhabiting the area reflect the integral role played by craft traditions. Handicrafts in some cases came to identify groups of people, as the caste system limited use of certain crafts to groups of people. The people confined to a certain caste were responsible for much creativity and innovation in their specific handicrafts because they relied on them for their livelihood. This contributed significantly to the prosperity of handicrafts in India. It also led to the development of new techniques in order to find ways to please the patrons.
