Village East Charakbai, near Baikhora, around 100 km from Agartala towards the southern part of Tripura takes the credit of producing this bamboo Gift pouch. It is a tedious process, but the artisans don’t seem exhausted because of their affinity for bamboo. In bamboo weaving, the bamboo stalk is sliced finely to create thin and light strands. These strands can either be coloured or preserved in the same state for a natural look. The strands are then spread evenly and put inside a wooden loom, followed by hand weaving with multi-coloured threads.
Through applying different types of weaving techniques, then it is also possible to create various kinds of pretty patterns as well. The weaves, thus generated are used to create all these lovely, eco-friendly file covers, folders and cases.
