Crafting of Cane and Bamboo Products

For making a Bamboo or Cane Product one has to take some tools. the tools are - a knife, a jak (V shaped wooden frame) and a Dao (bill -hook). For making any product first of all, the cane has to be cut into thin sticks or thin threads. This can be done with the help of knife and jak. The sticks are made in the open grounds and there is no particular shed or room to make them. When a very large scale production is done, there are chances of a big workshop. Sometimes files and saw too are used.

For every product there are different sizes and designs. All of them are made accordingly. The bamboo strips are woven with flexible cane slips. The Jali ( knit) is fitted with bamboo ropes. Thus the pieces are interlocked as per the desired shape. The Craftsmanship of the bamboo products takes time. One has to prepare the product very well, as one wrong stitching can completely disfigure the product. It can take one week to months to prepare one Bamboo Product depending upon the size and complexity of the design.

The Bamboo and Cane Products come for as low as Rs 100/- and as High as Rs 20,000/-.
