Hi! I am Chothi Devi. I was born on 1st January 1956 in Jodhpur, Rajasthan. I have not taken any academic education, but I am an artist of leather crafts. This is an ancestral art. I have learned this art from my ancestors in my childhood. This has been my means of earning from a very young age.
I got married in Jodhpur. My husband’s family was also involved in the same business. So I decided to continue this art with them.
I have participated in many exhibitions in Pragati Maidan & Crafts Museum (New Delhi). In an exhibition organized by the Ministry of Textiles in Greater Noida, I won my first award and won the Mahila Shakti Award in the exhibition organized by RUDA, Government of Rajasthan. I have won district award too.
I have also demonstrated my craft in Nepal.
