Weaving is done by arranging the bamboo strips in criss-cross manner. During the side wall weaving of a basket, the colored bamboo strips are inserted to enhance the outer look. Â Bamboo strips are dyed by immersing the bamboo strips in a color solution made by mixing color powder and water. Once the side walls are weaved, the rim of bamboo basket is made by fixing broad and thick strip of bamboo to the formed basket. The rim helps for better grip.
