Bounded by the foothills of Bhutan in the north, Brahmaputra river in the south, Darrang and Kamrup districts in the east and Barpeta district in the west, Nalbari is an ideal town in terms of culture and tradition.
Bamboo Craft of Nalbari
Despite the apparent influence of various cultures and increased dependency on modern technology, the town still has a strong connection with nature and resorts to the use of natural materials like bamboo for the preparation of various crafts.
From the busy marketplace in the city to the paddy fields in the outskirts of the town, the use and applicability of bamboo are very much evident. Huge grain storing bamboo baskets, net for catching fish, sievewall hanging and even intricate jewellery is made with this amazing variety of grass. However, most of these bamboo, crafts are used for their days without much interest by the local people to sell them for commercial purposes.
