Bamboo & Cane
Bamboo & Cane occupy an important place in rural life: utility articles such as agricultural implements, fishing traps, hunting tools and baskets are all made of bamboo. In Madhya Pradesh these are generally made by a community called 'Basor' or 'Basod', who sell them in the weekly markets.
Shahdol, Balaghat, Mandla and Seoni regions of Madhya Pradesh are main bamboo producing centres. The artisans have skillfully harmonized and blended their age-old knowledge and techniques with new designs, to meet the demands of modern markets. The Gond, Baiga and Korku tribal communities are highly skilled in the craft of bamboo.
