Sikki is a golden coloured grass which grows during the monsoons in the wet and marshy areas around rivers and ponds in Bihar & Uttar Pradesh. Munj (another grass) and khar are other important raw materials for the making of Sikki grass products. Munj is more abundant and rigid, and it is used to give basic shape and strength. At first munj is coiled and then it is covered with Sikki grass. The grass is boiled with food colouring to dye it in different bright colour.
Slight variations in color, weave and weight are inevitable and part of the product's 'handmade'character rather than faults.
