Preparation of bamboo Strips from bamboo: The craftsman fetches the bamboo from the forest. The whole bamboo is split into small pieces using a sharp knife. The outer layer of bamboo is peeled. It is cut into thin strips. The strips are manually woven into mats of different sizes and patterns, depending on the specific requirements. Sometimes, these strips are dyed using the colour solution. These colourful strips are used for making decorative products.
Mat weaving: It begins with the gathering of the raw material. Firstly, five strips are placed vertically as a base and hold by a leg. Other strips are inserted horizontally under the two vertical strips by taking up one above the vertical strip. Like that, add strips one above the vertical strip and one below the vertical strip. Once the base of the mat is prepared, add the required amount of strips for weaving. A criss-cross pattern is used in this mat weaving. The same procedure is followed until the required size of the mat is reached. When the weaving is completed, extra edges are cut. The woven mats are air-dried and can be stored without any treatment.
