From the sixteenth century onwards, Bengal's high-quality hand-woven garments, high-quality ivory, silver and other metallic handicrafts were also admired by the Mughal court.  The Mughal emperors patronized artisans.  They hired the artisan community to make decorations and gifts.  In the early days of Mughal rule, skilled craftsmen were encouraged to move from one place to another and were given additional patronage.  They made rare and high quality gifts for the court of the emperor of Delhi.  Handicrafts became widespread as the ruling class and the aristocracy used all these products.
