School of Designs:

Design is of basic importance in any production, for it is the designs that give identity to the object. Its significance lies in the fact that it is the projection of creative urge of human being.

Kashmir which has one of the richest craft traditions, had kept alive its crafts largely as a tourist trade, the same designs had more or less continued decade after decade with very little variations.. In order to give more color and life to the designs of Kashmir Handicrafts a design unit called School of Designs was established in late fifty's.
