Delhi has been the seat of administration of several rulers in the past and therefore the royalty patronized the arts and crafts of the region. It was the hub of crafts in ancient India and still maintained the tradition of craft making. The range of crafts in Delhi include: Blue pottery, jewellery making, zardozi embroidery, silver paper and toy making.

However, most of the craftsmen in the city live in the Old Delhi area. The best way to enjoy the amazing handicrafts of Delhi is to visit the Crafts Museum at Pragati Maidan, at the State Emporia on Baba Kharak Singh Marg or the famous Dilli Haat.
