Indian Scenario:
Harness & Saddlery goods are being manufactured in Kanpur for more than last 100 years. The Saddlery manufacturing started in the 19th century at the British Indian Corporation in its Copper Alan branch in Kanpur and simultaneously the British Government started the Ordinance Equipment Factory at Kanpur to cater to the needs of the Army. The craft of making saddlery was imparted to the local artisans by the master saddlers brought from the UK, whose generations now formed the workforce of the present industry.

By virtue of Kanpur’s specialization in vegetable tanned buffalo hides, and due to the presence of trained manpower, this has become the most important centre for manufacture of saddlery goods in India.  In fact, Kanpur is the only centre in India which produces the harness & saddlery goods. Almost all the units operating in Kanpur are 100% export-oriented.

Indian Saddlery and Harness industry is now becoming globally competitive and brand dominated, awash with designs. India is positioned as the third largest exporter of Saddlery & Harness to the world, accounting for a share of 8.04% in the global saddlery import of              US$ 1093.82 million.

Indian Saddlery and Harness products are gaining an ever-increasing recognition in the highly competitive global saddlery & harness leather arena. Estimated production capacity of the Saddlery & Harness industry in India is 12.50 million pieces per annum. Technology, work craftsmanship, product quality are the hallmarks of the Indian Saddlery & Harness industry. 

  • The major production clusters for Saddlery & Harness are Kanpur, Delhi etc
  • The different categories of Saddlery & Harness exported from India are Saddles / Bridles, Harness and Other Saddlery items
