The Indian artisans are well-known for designing beautiful boxes from cane and bamboo. These boxes can be used to keep jewelry, accessories or any other necessary thing. To enhance the look of such boxes, craftsmen paint designs on them to make them unique.
In the can craft, mostly furniture items are being made which has a very good local demand. The range of items produced that time and still in use in village include patlo (basket), varli (used for washing) rice and grains), suplis (for cleaning rice), mats in different sizes etc.
Cane & bamboo since ancient times have provided the raw material for basketry, mats & other, utility items including furniture. These are essentially rural crafts connected with every day needs of the people, not only for baskets, furnitures or mats but also for bags, boxes, jewellery and other decorative items.
The production of cane and bamboo articles involves the cutting of whole stems with a hacksaw and split longitudinally into various size using a bill hook or dao. The cane is heated on a slow fire with a kerosene lamp for flexibility. The weaving process is done by hand, using water to soften the splits.
