As I was walking down the Dharmotola area in Kolkata, West Bengal in India, I found this street vendor selling Kolhapuri chappal (footwear). The making of Kolhapuri chappals is a specialty skill found in the Athani district in the state of Karnataka in India. This footwear is an example of the skilled handicraft of the people from that area.

The footwear assumes the name of Kolapur, a town in Maharastra adjoining the border of Karnataka ..
