A simple tree can be the harbinger of real beauty inside your home. No, it’s not the ones you plant, it’s the Great Bamboo.
Hailing from the north-eastern states of India, the bamboo craft has got quite a clouded history, but it is certain that it was the artmanship of tribesmen. It spread from one tribe to another and thus the bamboo crafts started!
Assam is known for its 38 types of bamboo but little known are the bamboo types of the other north-eastern states. All the seven states work with different types of bamboos like ‘sundi’, ‘barjali’, ‘harua’, ‘golla’, etc. to make unique kind of products.
The Japi of Assam, the baskets of Arunachal Pradesh, the Kurup umbrella of Meghalaya, the lampshades of Tripura, the weaves and mats of Sikkim, the list goes on and on. Bamboo crafts are quite an elaborate affair and one of the thriving cottage industries in India.
What could be more environment friendly than a product whose origin is a plant stem? Bamboo products are easily biodegradable, easy to manage, aesthetic to look at, and useful too.
The lack of marketing has been pulling this industry down since a long time. It is trying for better growth and we can proudly say we are one of the many helping hands trying to save this age-old art.
