About the craft
Bidrihandicraft has obtained the ‘Geographical Indication’ to certify that it can be made only in Biadr, the significance of the craft lies not only in its beauty, history and production technique,
But also in a special ingredient- the soil from the Bidar Fort. This black soil is an important
Input for Bidri work as it has special chemical properties; the soil has been awy from sunlight
And rain for hundreds of years and is used as an oxidizing agent.
No one really knows what makes this soil unique. Our Bidri craftsmen have varied theories-
One suggested that back in the Sultans; days, copper coins were made in a section of the Fort.
Powdered metal seeped down to the soil, giving it its oxidizing property over the years. Another artisan clamims it is because weapons were stored underground in the fort.
