Kanpur has emerged as the hub of saddlery. A hundred years ago, British officers living in Kanpur taught local tanneries to make saddles for their horses. To its fame, Kanpur is the only center in the country, and even in Asia, producing harnesses and saddlery products. Harness and Saddlery goods or 'Horse riding and driving equipment' have been manufactured under the small industries umbrella in Kanpur for more than 100 years, obtaining a Geographical Indication (GI) tag only in 2014.
