These Artisan women have skills and traditional techniques that have been passed down through generations.They work from home, usually weaving under mango trees in the late afternoon and evening. The process of making the basket is called "coiling". They take the local grown grass and it is wrapped in recycled plastic strips. Making these items durable, sustainable & Eco-friendly.
