    Solution:

    The above statement is True.
    The artisans were restricted from openly selling their fabrics and crafts due to the organisation of the craft industry in places like Calcutta by European businesses. The skills and commerce in Calcutta saw considerable changes as merchants and artisans were relocated into the "Black Towns" built by European companies. The following features distinguish Calcutta's craft production from that of Thanjavur:
  • In Thanjavur, fine cotton was created for the general public and fabrics for flags used in temple celebrations. Along with it, bronze statues and towering, bell-shaped metal lights were also produced.
  •  In Calcutta, "Malmal", a silk fabric, was famously produced. Mollusk shells were used to make a variety of jewellery.
