carman Denoting hide ’ in general, is a common expression from the Rigveda onwards. The oxhide was turned to many uses, such as the manufacture of bowstrings, slings, and reins (see Go). It was especially often employed to place above the boards on which the Soma was pressed with the stones. It was possibly also used for making skin bags. Carmanya denotes leather-work generally in the Aitareya Brāhmana. The art of tanning hides (mlā) was known as early as the Rigveda, where also the word for ‘ tanner ’ (carmamηa) occurs. Details of the process are lacking, but the śatapatha Brāhmana refers to stretching out a hide with pegs (śaηkubhih), and the Rigveda mentions the wetting of the hide.
