    Wood-Craft

    There is a considerable amount of wood related work in the district. Wood crafting is done by means of a cutting tool resulting in a wooden figure or figurine, or in the sculptural ornamentation of a wooden object. The items manufactured here include household items such as doors, charms, beds, and artistic works such as wooden toys and artwork. The raw material required for wood work is available locally. The market for these products is in local regions and adjoining districts such as Lucknow, Kanpur and Allahabad.

    Introduction

    The district of Raebareli, which was created by the British in 1858, is named after its headquarters town. Tradition has it that the town was founded by the Bhars and was known as Bharauli or Barauli which in course of time got corrupted into Bareli. The prefix, Rae, is said to be a corruption of Rahi, a village 5km. west of the town. It is also said that the prefix, Rae, represents Rae, the common title of the Kayasths who were masters of the town for a considerable period of time.
    The district forms a part of the Gangetic plain which is of recent origin according to geological chronology and reveals ordinary gangetic alluvium. The only important minerals are reh and brick earth. About 90 brick fields are engaged to manufacture bricks. There is no mineral available for industrial purpose in the district of Raebareli.
