Distinctly different, with fine finish of thin fibre stripes, our rural artisans have used their fingers and toes to braid, coil and thread these fibre strands to its perfection. Embellished with tones of fresh and wild plantain green, naturally melded with a tint of Earth tone Yellow, these bags complete any blush or vintage look or simply all styles of ladylike outfits. Apart from just being used to hold our everyday necessities, these bags are ideal to carry books and stationeries, or store our Knitting and crafts supplements or they can simply be used to carry all those candies for our trick-or-treating.
The centre-piece of this craft is the bark of the banana plant. The bark is manually extracted, processed, split into ribbons, twisted by hand made into spindles in high intensive process. It is made by the women artisans of Chitradurga, Karnataka. . The uniqueness is that these fibres gets stronger and newer when the water is sprinkled on it.
