The impact of COVID 19 has been widespread, across all sections and classes of the global community. For smaller artisans and craft clusters, the pandemic has dealt a body blow leading to cash flow crunches, wage losses, cancellation/withholding of orders, indefinite supply of raw material and an overall uncertainty about the future of handmade.
